Good and something a little different for dinner. I did add a little more onion and celery, just to our taste. Also, I didnt have mint either, so i used basil too . My hubby loves eggplant, so this did the trick . For sides, I made some garlic bread and baked broccoli with lemon, garlic, bread crumbs and olive oil. All in a a nice "greek" dinner !
