This was really tasty! I was a little leery of the sauce, but the combination of flavours was really interesting and definitely played well with the vegetables. We didn't serve it with rice or pasta because we're trying to cut back on carbs, but there really wasn't enough sauce to need it. I didn't peel the eggplant, but I should have as the peel got a little too chewy when it cooked.
