This is very similar to a dish I enjoy at a fabulous Toronto restaurant, Jerusalem -- but the restaurant's version doesn't use raw garlic. I love the taste of this dish. If you're the only eggplant lover in your household (like I am), use a smaller eggplant, cut the sauce ingredients in half, and enjoy this yourself.
Not only does Inn Serendipity feature hearty vegetarian breakfasts (and bedside cordials in the evening), but the owners try to meet any special dietary needs, especially those of vegans. Their vegan cocoa pancakes are among the recipes most requested by vegans and nonvegans alike. Makes 18 to 20 pancakes. Published in Vegetarian Times, May 2005
I had some kale salad from my local Ingles grocery store the other day and wanted to make something similar at home. This is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it. The key is to chop up the kale real small. Feel free to put what you want in the salad. The dressing is used in Lebanon to use over fish, felafels, rice, etc.
