Today I have a special treat for you. Chef/owner Maurizio of The Good Fork Bistro in Morgan Hill, CA is sharing his special eggplant parmesan roll ups recipe with us. Not only is this one of his signature dishes, but he makes it gluten free so we can all try it.
(**Note The Good Fork Bistro has unfortunately closed…but you can still try out this delicious Italian recipe!)
Chef Maurizio has converted his restaurant’s eggplant parmesan dish over to gluten free and it is so good, his customers don’t even realize it is gluten free!
I am considering doing more video cooking demonstrations and I would really love your feedback after watching this video. I did this video with my iphone because it was a spur of the moment decision to make a gluten free dish in Chef Maurizio’s kitchen. Next time I plan to use a video camera and tripod 🙂
This recipe is hard to write up because Chef Maurizio is one of those chefs who doesn’t measure ingredients. He tosses in a handful of this, and a fast pour of that. As you watch the video, it becomes clear some of the amounts will be a personal choice as you cook.
Here are the basics that you need to make this recipe:
Large eggplant, sliced lengthwise to 1/2 inch thick
Fresh mozzarella, chopped into 1 inch cubes
Sliced mozzarella cheese
Grated parmesean cheese
Bob’s Red Mill gluten free flour blend
Fresh basil leaves
Chopped tomatoes, he uses cherry tomatoes in the video
3 large garlic cloves
Vegetable oil and Olive oil
Salt and pepper
I would love to hear your experiences making this recipe. Was it easy to follow along?
