    This dish has made the cut for my stable Lunch/Dinner recipes. Very easy and simple to make with few ingredient. I did not know chickpeas and eggplant will taste so good!!!. However, I made a mistake when I first cooked this dish and put 56 oz of Diced tomatoes instead the 14 oz and I am so happy that I did. I like the stew like texture. if I would have followed the recipe to the T, it would be a tad bit dry in my opinion. But all in all I have this dish about every other week now and you get 4 good hearty severing that fill you quite well. ^_^

    This was an easy to prepare, warming stew. I thought it was a bit plain and could have used some seasonings. I mixed a little feta into the stew (being out of goat cheese) to give it a little more flavor. I like that it is simple and healthy. Thanks!

    Super easy - super tasty. I added a few seasonings (cinnamon, chilis, cumin, garlic) because I love the flavor of tomatoes with cinnamon but this recipe needs nothing. It would be wonderful without my additions. I had it with brown rice. Love the goat cheese idea and will do that next time...which will be soon - I love eggplant! Thanks for another simple way to prepare it.
