I made this Gluten-Free Baked Eggplant Parmesan for a friend recently and would you believe, I think it tastes better than traditional eggplant parmigiana! A lot of the gluten free options you can buy at the store are full of unusual ingredients, so it’s really great to be able to cater for my gluten free friends in a wholesome way.

This take on eggplant parmesan is so easy to make. Simply roast eggplant slices in the oven. While the eggplant is cooking, make a tomato based sauce. When you assemble the dish, layer the eggplant slices, tomato sauce and cheese. Bake until it is bubbling. Top tip: the cheese will be molten hot when it comes out of the oven, so you should let this dish cool for at least 10 minutes before serving!
