Vegan Lasagna
Preheat oven to 350 °F
Using a colander, wash the eggplant.
Remove the eggplant, place it onto a large cutting board, peel the eggplant using a chef's knife. * a vegetable peeler will usually only get stuck on the peel.  
Slice the eggplant into 3 quarter inch thickness using a wide mandolin or chef's knife. 
Line a sheet pan with parchment paper & spread out the sliced eggplant evenly.  
Using a pastry brush, brush the olive oil onto each slice of eggplant, season lightly with kosher salt & place into the oven for 10 minutes to par-cook and get rid of the moisture. 
Remove eggplant from the oven & allow to cool for a few minutes
Layering by adding one layer of vegan Bolognese to line the pan, layer second layer with eggplant, third layer with a blend of mozzarella & Parmesan cheese. Continue layering until you reach 1/2 inch from the top, finishing with one layer of cheese blend. 
Place into the oven & bake for 35 minutes until the cheese is golden brown. 
Remove from oven and let the lasagna cool down, and set for 15 minutes.
Cut into portions, using a spatula slide onto a plate & buon appetito.
