Whether eaten at lunch time as a separate meal, as the appetizer before the main course or simply as part of a large buffet of food, this eggplant "herring" is a tasty experience. The key to getting the eggplant just the right texture for this recipe is blanching. You blanch a fruit or vegetable by immersing it in boiling water for a short period of time, preparing it to be added to the sauces by softening it. When added to the sauces, the eggplant soaks up the flavors in the sauces, softening it further.

For the Eggplant in Mustard Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup non-dairy cream (cashew, soy, etc…)
  • 1/2 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh dill, finely chopped

  • 1 cup vegan crème Fraiche or vegan sour cream

  • 1/8 cup yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced

Veganized traditional dishes and desserts from all across the globe and new, exciting culinary creations. Hi, I’m Chris, the guy behind Planticize. After being vegetarian for nearly 20 years, I finally went vegan in 2014! I enjoy eating, cooking, photography and travel. I’ve lived in three different countries, so my tastes are pretty eclectic. I love to planticize traditional dishes and create new and exciting ones, too! I think that going plant-based is the best for everyone and everything, and I strive to make food that looks and tastes great!
