I havent't been around much lately. Work hours are all over the place so I in my spare time I have to catch up on certain chores. I am taking a little time today to have some fun with food.

I have made breaded eggplant sandwiches. I guess I'm feeling a little Italian today.

Starting with eggplant, I sliced and coated them in salt.ssc3.jpg

I needed to bake bread since I was unable to find any quality vegan buns in the local area grocers. So I gathered bread flour and ground some oat flakes lightly adding it to the flour, yeast, salt, oil , water and agave nectar. The bread was shaped to buns and topped with some thyme and oregano.

The eggplant was coated in breadcrumbs after dipping each piece in flour then a cornstarch and water paste then breadcrumbs. They were pan fried on both sides then placed in the oven for twenty minutes.

The buns were slathered in pesto which I made from basil, olive oil, cashews, garlic, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. I love my red onions so a few slices of that went on, along with a drizzle of vegan salad dressing made from silken tofu, garlic, salt, pepper,oregano, white balsamic, and lemon juice.

I couldn't help but have a little bit of Sriracha to dip it in.

I've never tried eggplant on a sandwich before. Although I've made breaded eggplant, this is an inventive idea! Very nice presentation!
