Try out this delicious Eggplant Rollatini. *Recipe updated from 2017*
Who doesn’t love comforting meals without all the heavily fried aspects? Those meals that fill you up so perfectly without leaving you with that groggy and “food coma” feeling. Sure, a food coma means a successful meal but it also can leave you feeling incredibly sick and unable to do anything for the remainder of the day/night.
Before going Vegan, I used to love fried eggplant. Whether it was eggplant parm, heroes or even fried eggplant rollatini…I was down. I still am down, however only if it’s Vegan. Eggplant is quite a delicious vegetable and it tastes just as good roasted and I wanted to be able to showcase that in a delicious way.
What makes this dish so much heartier and rich is that I incorporated the easiest tofu ricotta. Using only a few ingredients, it’s incredibly easy to create a realistic ricotta without the animal products. I love tofu ricotta for a number of dishes but the combination of it and the tofu ricotta makes it utterly delicious.
This is such a great week night meal if you want to impress your family. Serve alongside some pasta or spaghetti squash and you have a perfect and healthy dish. It takes roughly 1 hour to complete and is perfect to throw together and actually makes great leftovers (and you guys know how I feel about leftovers…).
I hope you enjoy this recipe! Remember if you make it to tag me in the photo or on stories @plantbasedjane
