Aubergine Cordon Bleu

Duration 30 minutes
Persons 4 people

preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 ºC. Cut the aubergines into 5 mm slices and arrange on the work surface. Cut the cheese and tomato into thin slices and place evenly on half of the aubergine slices. Season with fresh thyme, salt and pepper.
  2. Place another slice of aubergine on top of each aubergine, pressing down lightly to make a sandwich.
  3. Lightly beat the eggs. Brush carefully over both sides of the aubergine and dip them in the breadcrumbs.
  4. Fry the cordon bleus in a hot pan with plenty of coconut oil until golden brown, then place onto a baking tray and bake for 7 minutes.
  5. Lift the cordon bleus from the baking tray onto kitchen paper to remove the excess oil. Turn over briefly and serve immediately.

What is No Muh melty cheese? I have never heard of it

Dear Cathlyn, No Muh melty cheese is a vegan soft cheese that melts into a delicious goo when you heat it. If your health store or supermarket does not carry No Muh melty you can use any other melty cheese (vegan or vegetarian, your choice). Best wishes, your tibits team

This recipe shows up in the selection of gluten-free recipes. I know to use gluten free breadcrumbs but this could lead someone astray if they're not careful...

Dear Kim M

Thank you for comment. We understand your concern but believe that people are smart enough to use a glutenfree option whenever needed as is the case with the bread here. :)

Best,

Can I replace the eggs with beaten 'aquafaba' (bean / chickpea liquid from a can) as a vegan option?

Dear Michelle

We have already tried replacing the egg with a mix from 2 Tbsp cornstarch and 5 Tbsp water which worked perfectly well. However, using aquafab might also work. Let us know when you give it a try.

Warmest regards

NO!

I am incredibly confused by the use of vegan cheese AND eggs

We use vegan cheese in this vegetarian recipe to keep it dairy free (f.i. for people with lactose intolerance). Feel free to replace the egg with a mix of 2 tbsp cornstarch and 5 tbsp water for a vegan cordon bleu.

Warmest regards,
