Don’t know what to do with your eggplant? Try one of these healthy delicious Vegan Eggplant Casserole Recipes.
Eggplant also known as aubergine is rich in nutrients and high in fiber and wonderful to use in vegan recipes for its “meaty” texture. It doesn’t have much flavor and it’s open to a broad palette of spices and seasonings.
Popular in Mediterranean cuisine, eggplant is often teamed with chickpeas, tomato sauce and spices to create flavorful dishes. The Greek Moussaka and Eggplant Parmigiana are perhaps the most famous eggplant layered casserole dishes.
One of the best ways to prepare eggplant to use in casserole recipes is to slice it, brush it with little olive oil, seasoning and roast it to bring out the flavor. Then get creative with layers of rich sauce, potatoes and vegan cheese to build your dish. Get inspired below with the best Vegan Eggplant Casserole Recipes out there.
