Preparation time: 1 hour
- eggplant (size and number depends on amount of people to be served)
Clean and slice eggplant into quarter of an inch slices, lengthwise.
Brush eggplant slices with olive oil, then sprinkle with chopped basil and rosemary. Grill the eggplant slices, either in a skillet, or on the grill outside. Whichever works best! They grill fast and can stick, so make sure to brush grill with olive oil and watch closely.
This recipe also works beautifully for squash and zucchini!

- 1 cup Silk Vanilla Soy Yogurt
- 1 pint strawberries
- nonstick cooking spray
Puree the strawberries in a food processor or your blender.
Lay down the fruit roll-up sheet in the dehydrator and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Spread the yogurt thinly over the drying sheet. Drizzle the pureed strawberries over this; use a toothpick to make marble effect. The measurements for ingredients are approximate; the overall goo should be about 1/4 inch thick. Dehydrate roughly 8hrs on 135. Cut into strips.
if you have no dehydrator, spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Lay down the ingredients as described above. Cook at lowest oven setting (usually 250) for around 4-6 hours. Cut into strips.
Slice the potatoes (skins on if you prefer) thinly and boil until almost done. Drain and set aside.
Cook sausages according to specifications, and slice into chunks. Combine them with the baked beans in a casserole dish. Layer the potatoes on top, covering everything underneath. depending on your casserole dish, you may need more potato.
In a separate pan, heat the oil on medium heat, and fry the chopped onion until soft. Add 1/4 of the soymilk and once hot, whisk the flour in slowly. Then add the rest of the soymilk while stirring. Once gently bubbling, take the pan off the heat and add the remaining ingredients. Stir thoroughly, then pour the milky sauce over the potatoes and bake in a 220 degree centigrade (425 Fahrenheit) oven for 20-30 minutes, until brown and bubbly.
Kids love this one, but I'll confess, I'm 22 and make this for myself all the time!
