Foodie Friday Logo

Welcome back to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Montana from Pretty Lil’ Mudder, Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl, Farrah from Fairyburger and Cassandra from Powered by BLING to create awesome healthy recipes each week!  Also, make sure you hop around to check out all the amazing recipes in this link up and feel free to add your recipes as well! 

This week we are whipping up some recipes vegetarian style! I know I have been posting a lot of zucchini recipes lately but that is just because I have a lot of zucchini to use up! So I present to you the last (I promise) zucchini recipe of the season and it is seriously sensational 😀

I gave this a fancy title just because it tastes so  amazing but really it is quite simple to make.  What the heck does Napoleon have to do with it you might ask? Usually the term (when referring to food) is used to describe the classic puff pastry filled with cream but fancy chefs also refer to stacked veggies as Napoleons and since I like to pretend I’m a fancy chef, I decided to throw it in the title 😉

Foodie Friday Zucchini & Eggplant Napoleon


Anyway, this Napoleon is stacked like so: breaded eggplant (made with gluten free bread crumbs), grilled zucchini, breaded eggplant, fresh mozzarella, tomato sauce and finally topped with some fresh basil for an extra burst of flavor!
