  • Yield: 2 - 4 servings
  • Prep Time: 15 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 1 to 1.5 Hours
  • Total: 1.5 Hours

Ingredients

• 1 medium-large Eggplant
• 1 8oz. Pkg. Sweet Earth Chipotle Seitan Grounds (or Chipotle Savory Grounds)
• 2-3 large Tomatoes
• 1-2 large Garlic cloves
• Fresh Parsley
• Fresh Basil
• Olive oil
• Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Rinse the eggplant and pat dry with paper towel. Cut the eggplant into thin slices
  3. Brush each eggplant slice with olive oil; season with salt and pepper.
  4. Cut tomatoes into thin rings. Finely chop the garlic, parsley and basil leaves.
  5. Place the eggplant on a parchment paper-lined baking pan. Stuff eggplant slices with Seitan, tomato, garlic, parsley and basil. Drizzle with more oil.
