Yummy! I had to make a couple of substitutions based on what I had around: a little less eggplant (from my garden and the others were not ready) brown sugar for caster sugar garlic for shallots no bamboo shoots no cilantro I also used a little bit less stock to make the sauce on the thick side. The eggplant were delicious! My husband finished them before his meat, which is rarity for any vegetable. This is definitely going on our repeat list, and I'll make sure to have the correct ingredients on hand next time. Thanks for posting!
