I forgot to mention I served it with some garlic bread and it was just the thing! ;)


So delicious! I never liked eggplant verymuch and I wasn't sure about the sesame oil, but this recipe is just amazing. I used Teriyaki, fresh basil and minced garlic and served it on a bed of couscous and turned out great! My omni husband loved it and said "My compliments to the chef" so, Mona, thanx! :D

Loved it!



If you're looking for simple, quick and tasty - try this dish! Frankly, that's the highest praise I can give!

I did make two additions that I will recommend - I added about a teaspoon of cornstarch to thicken the apple juice/soy sauce leftovers. It thickened them nicely into more of a sauce. I also added about 1/8 tsp of cayenne. Because, c'mon... when isn't cayenne good?  ;D


i didn't rave about this. i suppose it's because the changes i made:
* no cashews (didn't have)
* finely shredded apple and hot water insted of apple juice (can't find natural)
* 1 T sesame seeds and olice oil instead of sesame oil

it was pretty good, next i'm making this with the nuts and juice (if i find).
served over rice coloured with turmeric.


I honestly didn't expect this to turn out this good!  I added basil, garlic, and fresh rosemary like someone suggested and I skipped the oil- just put in the wet ingredients a bit earlier.  Mmm!  Thanks for the recipe!
