  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Place the sliced eggplants in a colander and sprinkle them with salt. Let them sit for 30 minutes to draw out any excess moisture.
  3. Rinse the eggplant slices and pat them dry with paper towels.
  4. In a shallow dish, mix together the flour, salt, and freshly ground black pepper.
  5. In another shallow dish, mix together the seasoned breadcrumbs and grated Parmesan cheese.
  6. In a third shallow dish, beat the eggs.
  7. Dredge each eggplant slice in the flour mixture, then dip it into the beaten eggs, and finally coat it with the breadcrumb mixture.
  8. In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Fry the eggplant slices until they are golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  9. In a baking dish, spread a thin layer of marinara sauce on the bottom.
  10. Arrange the fried eggplant slices in a single layer on top of the sauce.
  11. Top the eggplant slices with more marinara sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese, and chopped fresh basil.
  12. Repeat the layers until all the eggplant slices are used up.
  13. Bake the Veg Eggplant Parmesan in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  14. Serve the Veg Eggplant Parmesan hot, garnished with additional chopped fresh basil, if desired.
