  13. 11. Melt Earth Balance; stir in flour on medium heat.
  14. 12. Keep stirring and add milk slowly; stir out the lumps.

  28. 18. Repeat the layers and sauce if there is any left.
  29. 19. Pour the bechamel (may need to be reheated); sprinkle with vegan cheese if you so desire; (looks very nice with the minced red pepper & tofu crumble).
  30. 20. Cover* & bake at 350° for an hour (remove cover for the last 15 minutes).
  31. * I am always too impatient to let the eggplants drain for 30 minutes beforehand, so I don't use a cover.
