    Devora's Note:

    They say in the Middle East that you can't get married until you know 101 ways to cook eggplant. I was recently married, and I'm counting this as one of my ways. I found this recipe online and loved the unique way of preparing the eggplant... hope you do too!

      Delicious for DD1 (5 years ol) and I! We enjoyed this over quinoa pasta. I used half the amount of whole plum tomatoes I wizzed in the blender with a tad more water until it was a sauce. I used a medium eggplant, sea salt, to taste, organic light tasting extra virgin olive oil, organic onion, sweet paprika, freshly ground black pepper, to taste, organic garlic cloves, plus the rest of the ingredients. I may make this again.
