This is a good easy recipe to use up eggplant. In an attempt to keep this low-fat I did not add the clarified butter. I cooked the onions and tomatoes with Pam butter flavored spray added garlic and a bit of salt. I also used much more spice than called for. Served it over brown rice and it really was tasty and very healthy. The leftovers were even better. Read More

I like this recipe as a base but it needs a lot more flavor. I added garlic lemon juice and garlic salt but it still needs a bit more tweaking to be really flavorful. Read More

This is so simple delicious and easy to make. I didn't bake the eggplant I just sauteed it with the onions and I used safflower oil instead of clarified butter. I added the fresh tomatoes very close to the end of cooking and just cooked them very lightly so they gave a little texture to the dish. I also used 5 really heaped teaspoons of cilantro seeds and ground them lightly so they were very pungent. Thank you for this recipe I'll definitely make it again. Read More

Very yummy. I hadn't made eggplant before so I wasn't quite sure whether to just mash the eggplant insides or to include the skin. I didn't include the skin and it turned out yummy! Read More

Next time will not bake eggplant but blanch and saute with onions and 1 clove minced garlic. Also added some salt and had to use ground coriander (1/2 tsp) and will add more next time too. Thought I had seeds but... Used canned tomatoes which was fine. Not impressive looks but really tasted pretty good. Read More

Indeed simple but oh so flavorful! I used canned diced tomatoes for even more simplicity they were fine. Served this with steamed cauliflower and whole string beans grilled yogurt chicken and basmati rice. Will do again. Read More

Had to substitute green onions and canned diced tomatoes (drained). Also I was too impatient for the eggplant to finish getting mushy in the oven so I pulled it out and cut into pieces...sautee'd it all (covered). Was delicious! Great alternative to fried eggplant. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More
