    I had all the ingredients (except the carrots) picked fresh from my garden and waiting for to be used in a new recipe. I cubed and salted the eggplant and then prepared the remaining vegetables. Sauteed everything together low and slow stirring frequently, added salt and red pepper flakes and it was finished. I didn't chill it, just ate some on Multi-Grain Club crackers while still a little warm and it was very delicious. A great us of eggplant.  -  28 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My friends and I all loved this. I served it on toasted French bread. Delicious!  -  10 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    So tasty! Surprising how it cooks down to so little, but works great as not only a cold topping for breads but also warm with rice. A great multipurpose hearty-slash-healthy dish for us vegetarians.  -  31 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
