Serves: 4-5 servings
  • 1 medium eggplant, peeled and sliced lengthwise ¼ thick
  • water for sauteeing
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 2 ounces kale, chopped
  • 2 ounces arugula, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Mrs. Dash, chipotle flavor
  • 3 cups no-salt-added marinara sauce, divided
  • ¼ cup shredded non-dairy cheese (I love Daiya mozzarella in this recipe)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray the foil with cooking spray if desired, or lightly wipe it with an oil-dabbed paper towel. On an aluminum-foil lined baking sheet, arrange the eggplant in a single layer. Bake the eggplant for 20 minutes, so it will become flexible enough to roll.
  2. In a large pan over medium-high heat, dry- or water-saute the peppers, onion and carrots until just softened. Make a well in the vegetables and add the garlic in a pool of a tablespoon of water and cook the garlic in the water until the garlic becomes fragrant. (This helps so it doesn't burn.) Then mix everything together. Add the kale, arugula and Mrs. Dash and stir to combine. Saute all for another 3-5 minutes or until the greens are wilted.
  3. Add 2 cups of the marinara plus 2 tablespoons of the cheese and stir to combine.
  4. In an 8x8 inch baking dish (use a 9x9 inch dish if you used a large eggplant), pour some of the marinara sauce on the bottom of the pan. Dampen each side of a piece of the eggplant with the sauce, lay it down, add 2-3 tablespoons of the vegetable mixture on top and then roll the rest of the eggplant up to cover the veggie mixture. Repeat for all of the eggplant, tucking it all together side by side in the pan. Pour the remaining marinara over the eggplant rollups and top with the remaining cheese.
  5. Bake in the oven until warm, about 25 minutes. For an easy visual to this recipe, watch the video I've created. :)
