      There's nothing weird about this! I added some cayenne pepper flakes and served this alongside some hummous and tehina, with toasted pita triangles for scooping and dipping!

      This was just okay for us - we had this over brown rice. My boyfriend said it was slightly bland and needed some texture. If I made it again, I would probably increase the spices and maybe cube the eggplant instead. My biggest difficulty/struggle with this recipe was with step 3, peeling the eggplant. I resorted to scooping out the flesh, but still took me about 20 minutes to peel and was totally frustrated. Anyone know an easier way to peel it?
