Sorry, but this was not to our taste! The only thing I left out was the soy sauce. Otherwise I don't know where I went wrong. It had a pasty consistency. Maybe b/c I used fat free feta and fat free yogurt? Don't know, but didn't work.

Directions

  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Blend garlic, olive oil and soy sauce.
  3. Cut eggplants at a sharp angle into ¾-inch slices, to make ovals.

  7. Arrange eggplant slices on pan, pressing them close together.
  8. Brush with oil mixture until it is absorbed.
  9. Process cilantro, mint, feta, 2 tablespoons yogurt, sugar and hot sauce in a blender until smooth, adding yogurt as necessary.
  10. Taste and adjust flavors.
  11. Set eggplant in broiler (if halved, place cut sides up).
  12. Cook until tender and lightly charred, about 5 minutes (do not turn over).
  13. Arrange on platter; top with half the sauce.

  15. Pass remaining sauce separately.
