My favorite Eggplant Parmesan Casserole (and it's secretly diet-friendly) . The eggplant is thinly breaded and baked with just a mist of oil before stacking, so it isn't greasy or fattening, but has that old fashioned flavor.
Trying to slice into this eggplant Parmesan while it's molten hot creates an oozy mess, so let it rest at room temperature for at least 30 minutes to firm up before serving. This is part of BA's Best, a collection of our essential recipes.
Turkish Eggplant Casserole with Tomatoes (Imam Bayildi)
Healthy Turkish Eggplant Casserole Recipe with Tomatoes (Imam Bayildi). Imam Bayildi is a healthy vegan twist on the usual breaded, fried eggplant casserole. The slices are covered in Mediterranean tomato sauce and baked.
This makes for a luxuriously rich vegetarian meal, prepared in only an hour thanks to a few shortcuts. Eggplant slices are dipped in egg and breadcrumbs, then baked instead of fried. The slices are layered with tomato pasta sauce, mozzarella and parmesan.
