Sweet, spicy, salty and sour this dish is saucy and comforting. The eggplant is sautéed until cooked through but still has good texture, the sauce is reduced and the eggplant is added to the sauce to soak up all the delicious goodness. The perfect meal during this time of transition, when heat loving eggplants and tomatoes are slowing down their production and I’m not quit ready to dive head first into fall ingredients.
This vegan zucchini banana bread has been my go to snack these past few weeks. A great way to use up zucchini, this recipe makes two delicious loaves. Eat one right away, slice and freeze the other (I separate the slices with parchment paper). With a hint of cinnamon and crunchy walnuts, my favourite way to eat this is topped with a generous amount of tahini (or peanut butter) and fresh blackberries!
