This is a derivation of a recipe called Eggplant Marrakech from "Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant". The original recipe called for Berbere (a spice mix), vermicelli, cooked brown rice and cooked chickpeas. I didn't have any of that, so I substituted masalas, jasmine rice, baby Bella mushrooms and uncooked lentils. It turned out well -- spicy and delicious. It is definitely not a low-salt dish, though! You can substitute mixed spices for the masalas if you wish. Enjoy!
