i actually changed this a bit -- i didn't fry the eggplant, i grilled it. i didn't use any vegan cheese, either. it was still awesome.

This was awesome! One of the things I miss since going vegan is eggplant parm, but this fits the bill perfectly. I also added a few mushrooms to the tofu mix. The only thing I would change is to add more sauce. Thanks for sharing!

Absolutely loved this recipe! I had made it before without the tofu/spinach mix, but it's so much better with it! Even my non-vegan friends loved it.
