    Miheehee's Note:

    Had an eggplant (which I never cook with) and some miscellaneous squash in the fridge. Wanted to make the vegetable stew I had enjoyed so often in Egypt but all the recipes I could find were too much like Greek mousaka (layers, white sauce etc.) so I experimented and came up with this.

      Yum - healthy and nicely spiced. Very easy to make. My only problems were finding a big enough pan for frying the spices - adding the vegies in step 6 really overloaded it - I ended up being in in 2 stages (and doubling the spices), and then finding a big enough casserole dish (also ended up using two). Maybe my vegies were oversized? Still yummy and easy to make with stuff I keep in the pantry / fridge all the time. Served over rice for a lovely gluten-free meal.
