Top Review by nomnom

I had one medium eggplant and one CJUMBO-sized eggplant - so I ended up with 30 slices. All I did was use 1.5 recipes for the filling and filled each roll with 1/2 tsp filling (which was sufficient, it practically squited out the sides ;). Delicious! Great combo or flavors. I love eggplant, love sun-dried tomatoes, love oregano. I used lite firm tofu in place of the cream cheese and omitted the olive oil and lemon. Filling and eggplants can be made ahead and stored separately and assembled later. I used the gazpacho by-product from my Rainbow Roasted Salsa as a dip (I used a habanero for it - oh boy). I will certainly enjoy these leftovers.
