Get excited for a finger-licking good Vegan Philly Cheese Steak sandwich. With hearty marinated eggplant, tasty sauteed onions and mushrooms, and fresh green pepper, this is also gluten free, 100% plant based, and so super easy to make.



  • 1 large eggplant, peeled and cut into stripes
  • 1 cup of my Buffalo Homemade BBQ Sauce or your favorite store-bought
  • 2 Tbs olive or sunflower or canola oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and pressed
  • salt, pepper to taste

For the Vegan Cheese:

Optional add ons:

  • Fried bell pepper stripes, onions and mushrooms, more hot sauce to serve.


  1. Start with mixing BBQ Sauce, the hot sauce (optional), and garlic. Combine well with eggplant slices in a bowl, season with salt and pepper. Let sit to marinate for around 10 minutes.
  2. While the eggplant is marinating, make the cheese. Simply combine all the ingredients in the bowl of a blender. Add the nutritional yeast and blend until really smooth and creamy. Set aside.
  3. After marinating the eggplant stripes, heat oil in a pan und fry them for around 15 minutes. Use medium heat, and stir regularly.
  4. To assemble your sandwich, start with some vegan cheese on your favorite bread, followed by eggplant, finishing with some sauce again.
