My goal: cook and blog about vegan food 20 times
during the month of September.
My theme: words and food
|This had so much flavor! Delicious and easy to throw together after a busy work day.|
|My Lucy loves to nibble on strawberries - it's kinda annoying.|
|I got this recipe from a 'cyber friend' on a "Lutherans Who Love to Cook" Facebook page|
Don't you just love how small and friendly our world is becoming?
Thanks Sandy!! Your recipe rocks!!
|Freeze in portion size ice cube trays. Perfect!|
Here's what you need:
One medium eggplant, sliced 1/8 inch on a mandolin
1 T maple syrup
2 T soy sauce
1/2 t liquid smoke
Here's what you do:
Bake the eggplant slices on an oiled baking sheet at 425 degrees for about 12-15 minutes, turning them over and removing them if they get too brown. You need to watch them closely.
Prepare the marinade by whisking the remaining ingredients together.
Dip each slice of baked eggplant in the marinade and return to the baking sheet. Continue to bake at 350 degrees for about 8-10 more minutes. Watch the slices closely and turn them over often.
|Day One - Delicious!|
|Leftovers the next day - still delicious!|
|This nut loaf was frozen, uncooked. It turned out great!|
Just the tiniest bit soggy in the middle, as you might see in the photo.
