Top Review by Shelly

This was a great vegetarian hot lunch. At first I thought the cumin sounded a little out of place but it combined with the lemon juice and mint make for a great flavor combo. The eggplant, onion, feta and garbanzos make it filling and tasty -- I especially like the salty punch the feta gives. I enjoyed this in a warmed whole grain pita -- which makes it South Beach phase two friendly. :) Definitely a keeper.
