    Engrossed's Note:

    From: "The Vegetarian Epicure" by Anna Thomas, first edition 1972. This book was a real find! I love eggplant accompanied by strong flavors. Feel free to add herbs or red pepper flakes to taste.

      One of the most flavorful eggplant dishes I've tried - very Mediterranean! I used calamata olives in place of the black olives to add to that taste. I also used pre-sliced green olives since I had an open jar in the fridge. I used 3T wine vinegar and 1T splenda; however, I felt that the sweetness of the splenda and wine vinegar was overpowering, next time I would use half of those two ingredients. I didn't add additional salt since olives and capers are already pretty salty. My family of 3 ate the entire thing tonight for dinner as a main course. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders tag game.

      well for myself it just cannot get any better than this, all the ingredients I love! a few amount adjustments were needed, also I used chicken broth in place of water, I increased the olive oil and added in some crushed chili flakes, the full amout of capers was used and freshly ground black pepper is a must, since my DH is not a lover of capers I was delighted to enjoy this all myself! thank you for sharing Engrossed!
