The Bread Series
I grew up in a time when ‘vegetarian’ was met with confusion and we were often served fish. Whenever I was invited for dinner, I knew I would be served an eggplant without a doubt. I’d have to specify that anchovies were not okay, nor was fish sauce or prawn crackers – how times have changed in the last decade. So eggplants and Portobello mushrooms were whipped up in innovative ways for me. And a common sandwich served was the eggplant parm – the vegetarian version for the chicken.
The eggplant parm sandwich is one of the more substantial ones you can offer and get away without serving any sides. This is a huge meal in itself thanks to meatiness the eggplant provides, along with the garlicky marinara and melting mozzarella and parmesan! The lovely baguette is ideal from Le Artisan Boulangerie that soaks up the juices, yet maintains shape with the heavy eggplant slices.
