Easy Veggie Calzones

Last week I made these simple veggie calzones that were scrumptious and can be made so quickly! I stuffed my calzone with eggplant, mushrooms, bell pepper, and spinach then mixed in some marinara and spices for a tasty pocket of goodness! You can add vegan mozzarella if you’d like, but I just added a sprinkle of Violife vegan parm and close them up. You can sauté the veggies in a few minutes and they only bake in a high heat oven for about 10 minutes. So delicious! I made a side salad and it was a great weeknight meal.
