    Missy Wombat's Note:

    How to use up that extra eggplant especially if it is starting to look a little sad. Great with any Mediterranean type meal

      These are delicious and very nice as an hors d'ouevres (we call them 'meze' in Greece) with drinks. Nicely flavoured and you can't stop at one!
