Andy and Roz,

Here is the recipe I promised to send about 2 months ago. I only ever make the stacks 2 slices high.

I really like the look of these, another good healthy meal for me to make. Thanks for Sharing this one. Great

Aubergenes, right?

I do like moussaka but I'm not fond of egg plants., generally.

Back in the day (like 1971) of my early flush of Middle Eastern glow, I held  a party I called a 'Moussaka Evening'.  I must have fed 20 that night with that eggplant dish.  I thought I was the bee's knees. We also did lamb kebabs using coat hangers.

Just the same I find moussaka 'a bit rich'. It needs yogurt on the side for toning down.

More recently I developed  a passionate taste for Caponata -- the Sicilian eggplant stew or salad. Also  a 'bit rich'. Ironically it requires vinegar.

Surprising taste. Herbs plus vinegar/hot or cold.

And I've always made a good  Baba Ganoush which I think is the queen of flat bread dips. Best grill the eggplants rather than bake. Smokiness really adds so much to the favour.

I catered for a funeral once and my Baba Ganoush  was a big hit with the living. Now there's a niche: funerals. Got paid well too.  I really worked up a skill in the Meze menu such that Meze became my catering forte.

If Meze is one of the great menu options in the world it isn't possible without eggplant.

Love eggplant, great recipe - Thanks

Great recipe Roger, it has ingredients that most people have in the pantry.  Ian has his own veggie plants now and he likes eggplants so this easy recipe will be good.   Baba Ganoush is very nice, I have tasted that before.
