  • 1 medium eggplant
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ cup vegan mayo
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ¼ cup roasted walnuts
  • ¼ cup chopped dill


  • Peel the eggplant and cut it lengthwise into ¼ inch thick slices.
  • Brush them with just a little bit of olive oil and fry them on a non-stick skillet over medium heat until fully cooked and nicely browned. You will need to work in batches, 2-3 slices at a time. Season the slices with salt as you cook them.
  • In a small dish, mix the vegan mayo and garlic, and set aside.
  • To roll the roulades, place the eggplant slice onto a clean surface. Gently spread some garlic mayo on top and sprinkle it with some walnuts and chopped dill. Roll them and garnish with fresh dill. Enjoy!



Add-ins and Substitutes

  • Substitute vegan ricotta for the mayo. This adds a creamy, cheesy taste and texture to your roulade. You can add herbs, pesto, or tomato sauce as well.
  • Add other herbs. In place of dill, you can use parsley or other herbs you like, such as chives, basil, or oregano.
  • Substitute different nuts. Make this recipe with other roasted nuts, such as cashews, almonds, and pine nuts.
  • Add balsamic vinegar. For a sweet and tangy finish, drizzle balsamic vinegar on these Eggplant Roulade, or heat it on the stove for a thicker and more flavorful reduction.

How to Store

You can store these Eggplant Roulades in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 4 days. If you would like to freeze them, you can do this in a casserole dish covered with foil and plastic wrap, or a freezer safe container. Allow them to thaw overnight in the fridge and reheat in the oven. You may find the mayo has melted into the eggplant though, so for best results, eat this dish fresh.
