Vegan Eggplant Parmesan

I have been making a change in my life and that is most of my diet is vegan food which I love. I am a person that can go with out meat and do not need it as a filler. So here and there I have been making vegan dinners for my family and so far there have been complaints and everyone has been enjoying my meals especially this one! No cheese, fresh ingredients, you will forget you are eating egg plant!  

1 Medium Eggplant
1/4 C All Purpose Flour
1 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs
1 Tablespoon Nutritional Yeast
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1 Teaspoon Salt&Pepper
1/2 Almond Milk
1 Teaspoon Cornstarch 
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Marinara Sauce 

Slice the eggplant into round less than 1/2 inch thick, sprinkle each side with seas salt, place in a colander for 15 minutes; This will help get rid of the bitter taste the eggplant may have. 
Rise Eggplant off and absorb with kitchen towels for 10 minutes until eggplant is dry.

Preheat oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with foil and nonstick spray. Durning this time start to prepare your noodles and sauce. 

Prepare your coating station: Place milk and cornstarch in one bowl; flour, salt and pepper in another bowl; and crumbs, yeast, garlic, and Italian seasoning in the last bowl. 

When eggplant is dry start breading, place your egg plant in flour, egg, then the crumb mixture. Place crumbed eggplant on foil and place into the oven. Take out 2-3 eggplant rounds at a time and fry until golden brown on each side; place back into the oven and grab 2-3 more. Egg plants should stay into the oven for at least 15-20 minutes.

Place pasta on a plate with sauce and eggplant rounds on top.
