Thank you for sharing this recipe, it was delicious! I had bought some beautiful eggplants and when I saw the nutritional contents in this recipe plus the addition od the white beans, decided to give it a try. Shared several servings with my son and his girlfriend, nothing but raving fans!! It is a recipe that is so very delicious, we never missed all that oil from frying, it was definitely worth making and I will add the recipe to my "Make often" file. Thank you again!
