my lovely italian grandma surprised me with this dish of something wonderful earlier this fall.
why i'm including it: i visited my grandma for her birthday earlier this year... she's an amazing woman who has inspired me more than she knows. and she's made some of the best italian food i've ever tasted (and still trying to emulate). she taught me about black pepper on pizza! anyways, she embraced my veganism and made this eggplant parm for us to share, complete with vegan mozzarella.
would i make it again: if only i could do her cooking justice.
ps - happy thanksgiving!
