Elizabeth is such a great cook and has a lot to offer those that come out to the cooking classes. This is one reason I enjoy cooking with this super lady. Elizabeth shared with our class a recipe for vegan Eggplant Parmesan. Even though the demo was not made gluten free there is still the option to make this dish gluten free. See the added notes for the substitutions. This dish smelled, looked, and tasted amazing. We hope that you enjoy it as much as the class did. Enjoy.
