Eggplant Salad in Parmesan Cups

I was hoping the parmesan cups would be crunchy but they were kinda chewy. Maybe I did something wrong?


Vegan Currywurst

The recipe I found for currywurst sauce was already vegan so all I had to do was put it over a veggie sausage instead of a pork sausage, but I haven't had German fast food in a while so someone else will have to let me know how authentic the recipe is. I think currywurst usually has worcestershire sauce and there was no way I was about to put in 1/2 a cup of sugar so I doubt it was anything like the real stuff. According to the pictures I've seen, they're supposed to be served with fries on the side but that's just too much grease for me so I made potato salad instead.

Chickpea Salad

This is either Israeli salad with chickpeas, or tabbouleh with chickpeas instead of bulgur (and less parsley).
Cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, parsley, green onions and chickpeas. Olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar (I use rice vinegar but red wine vinegar probably makes more sense), cumin, sumac, salt and pepper.
