I must admit, I've never tried this. But the picture in the magazine (something at the doctor's office) looked absolutely delicious. My grandfather loved eggplant, but nobody else in the family did. I thought I'd at least give this a try in the summer when the eggplants and fresh spinach come in. I wish now I'd ripped out the picture for reference. So, if you give this a try, let me know how it turns out!
