Interesting reviews ... But honestly, I had to weigh it against who I knew would like it and those I knew who would be iffy. I loved it. Although it needed more garlic and salt to me. But the flavor was all there. Those who didn't like it, like the meat dishes more. I knew that. For us who like a vegetarian type of dish, we loved it. I grilled up pita chips and also some crackers to serve and there wasn't any left other than a lonely teaspoon. I really liked the eggplant with the chickpeas as they made a nice mix. Very nice recipe!
