Looks like one hell of a tasty meal. Can't wait to try it!<br><br><br><br>
Quick question: should I boil the water with the eggplant already in it or add it after the water starts boiling?<br><br><br><br>
Thanks!

This was <i>really</i> good! I added some sugar to the eggplant / chick pea stuff as it was cooking and doubled the amount of garlic. Since I was out of almonds, I added pine nuts and a little salt.

Ooh...I'm glad this got bumped. I'd completely forgotten about it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":shy:"> I think this may show up on Saturday's dinner plate. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">

this was quittte tasty.<br><br>
i started just sauteeing the onion/garlic so they'd be softer, and then added my eggplant/tomato. i also added a bay leaf, dried italian seasonings, and salt/pepper to the stuffing.<br><br>
this would be realllly good with some marinated artichoke hearts in it, too. if someone wants to try that out, let me know. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
