Default Eggplant hotdish

(Adapted from vegweb.com)

1 eggplant
1 TBS basalmic vinegar
2 TBS olive oil
1 TBS water
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 c. veggie broth
2 cloves garlic
3/4 c. uncooked quinoa
zucchini
red pepper
onion
1 c. grated parmesan cheese
Spicy tomato sauce

Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

Chop one clove of garlic, add to the veggie broth, and bring to a boil. Add the quinoa, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Chop eggplant into 1/4" slices. (I only use 1/2 of the eggplant -- 8-10 slices.) Mix salt, olive oil, basalmic vinegar, and water in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mixture over each slice of eggplant, and smooth out the mixture so that it thinly covers each slice.

Chop red pepper, zucchini, onion (I only use 1/2 of the onion), and 1 clove of garlic.

Lightly grease an 8 x 8 baking dish.

Put 4-5 slices of eggplant on the bottom of the dish. Cover with a thin layer of quinoa and 1/4 c parmesan cheese.

Layer the pepper, zucchini, onion, and garlic over the previous layer. Cover with another layer of quinoa and 1/4 c. parmesan.

Layer another 4-5 slices of eggplant over the quinoa. Add yet another quinoa/ 1/4 c cheese layer on top of that.

Spread spicy tomato sauce over the last cheese/quinoa layer. Sprinkle remaining parmesan over tomato sauce.

Loosely cover baking dish and bake for 30-40 minutes.

1600 calories for the entire hotdish -- I eat about 1/5 for a serving.
