Lamb and Eggplant (Aubergine) Stack

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by JustJanS

A magazine find. I altered the amount of cinnamon and cumin to suit our tastes. Remember our Aussie tablespoons contain 4 teaspoons.

This was amazing. I couldn't find ground lamb, so I minced some lamb chops and added ground chicken. I also did not use the mint, parsley, or feta due to allergies. The smell and flavor are incredible. We also used a quick way to pull the bitter juices out of large eggplant. We cut them up into the large strips and let them soak in salt water for 15-30 minutes. Then, we rinsed off the eggplant and made the recipes.
