Vegan Eggplant Parmesan Melanzane Alla Parmigiana

Vegan Eggplant Parmesan is one of my favorite Italian dishes, so of course I had to make it! Thank you for your suggestion! The video is 30 minutes long. I try to keep my videos as short as possible, but since there are several steps to make this dish it is longer than usual. I am making my own sauce and breading my own eggplant, so this video is like watching two in one. You can use store bought sauce if you would like, but making fresh tomato sauce is easy, let me show you how!
