This is an excellent dinner to serve. Egg Plant is a meat substitute and very healthly for you.


Two large round egg plants, sliced into ½ inch slices

1 pound of fresh fat free mozzarella cheese sliced and cut into 4 squares

Grated Parmesan cheese

One small Egg Beaters carton with egg substitute in it.

Canola Oil for frying.


Herb Spread:

3 Garlic cloves

¼ cup of loosely packed Basil leaves

¼ cup of packed Flat leaf parsley

1/8 teaspoon of hot red pepper flakes

3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil

In a bowl mix together all of the above to make the spread. An alternative to making the Herb Spread would be to purchase Traditional Basil Pesto.

Take a slice of egg plant spread pesto on it, then top it with a slice of Mozzarella cheese. Place another slice of egg plant on top. Dip sandwich in egg substitute, then dip in grated parmesan cheese until well coated. Fry in a large skillet of canola oil. You will have to fry sandwiches in batches, drain on paper towels, reserve the cooked ones in a warm oven or near the fire to stay warm.

Serve as sandwiches or with a side salad or whatever pleases you.
