12 servings


  • 4 cups vegan mayonnaise

  • 1 cup Dijon mustard

  • 4 medium eggplants, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds

  • 4 cups vegan bread crumbs

  • 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 12 medium Roma tomatoes, sliced

  • 8 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 40 leaves fresh basil, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  2. Combine vegan mayonnaise and mustard in a bowl until well blended. Coat each slice of eggplant in the mayo-mustard mixture, then coat with bread crumbs. Arrange coated slices on the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until tender, about 45 minutes.

  4. While the eggplant is baking, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add tomatoes, garlic, and basil; saute until fragrant and heated through, 3 to 4 minutes.

  5. Serve eggplant slices with a generous portion of the tomato mixture.

Cook's Note:

Make sure your vegan mayonnaise has some fat in it. I use Italian-style bread crumbs.
