Ratatouille Subs

Watching Rachael Ray A couples days ago and I love the Idea of Ratatouille Subs. I have kinda had the thought of doing it and really hadn't taken the time. But mine wouldn't have included Fried Red Tomatoes... But I did use the red tomatoes and even though it wasn't as good as I though it would be it was still pretty good. If I would have had another pasta sauce it would have been alot better (I didn't use her sauce recipes either). Here is a link to her not vegetarian version.... But I changed it a little bit to make it vegan...

Ingredients list
2 Medium Zucchini
2 Hard red tomatoes
1 Eggplant
2 or 3 cloves garlic
Almond milk
Panko Bread crumbs
Whole Wheat Bread Crumbs
Vegan Parm
Canola Oil
Italian Buns/Subs

Slice all the veggies, add salt to the Eggplant and Zuccs and sit aside for 20 minutes. While that is draining. Mix the two types of bread crumbs with vegan parm, salt and pepper, put into a dredging dish, put milk in one, and flour in the last. Cover the bottom of your pan with oil, let it heat but not smoke. Add a few pieces of fresh sliced garlic. Do not let the garlic burn you are just flavoring the oil. Let it fry for a couple minutes then take it out. Then you are ready to dip your veggies in flour, then milk, then bread crumbs and then fry. Pick the tomatoes up with a flat spatula. If you try to pick them up with a fork they will fall apart... Try to fry them very quickly as well. The longer they are cooking the mushier they will get and you don't want that. but you do want them to get a nice crust on them. 

After you fry your veggies you can put them on a cooling rack and on a baking sheet and put them in the oven at 200F to keep them hot. 
When your done frying Add the veggies, the sauce of your choice, and some daiya and pot into oven to toast and melt.
