"This is a rich, substantial meal when served with pita or crusty bread and salad. It gets better with time and makes a popular leftover, if there are any leftovers!"

very filling and hearty! i cheated though by cubibg the eggplant and cooking it with the onions. then i only had to cook it on the oven for 30 mins.
It was okay, but a little bland for me.
This was a very good base recipe, but I added a few more ingredients so I would enjoy it more. I used chickpeas (1/2 mashed, 1/2 whole) added chopped tomatoes, put in a layer of zuchinni, brushed balsamic vinegar over the eggplant before baking in the oven, and used whatever quantities of ingredients I thought would be good proportions. Five stars after my additions. Thanks Mai for the great base recipe.
Excellent vegetarian recipe and probably one of the best uses of eggplant. For a single guy like me who is still finding his way around the kitchen, this dish turned out to be a great confidence builder, with plenty for left overs to boot!
I would definitely increase the quantity of sauce and use a slightly heavier hand on the parmesan.
Thank you for a great dish.
This recipe was surprisingly good. I was a bit skeptical of the yogurt, but you wouldn't have even known yogurt was in it once it was cooked. I had a jar of garlic tomato sauce so I used that instead of making my own. Since my husband and I are cheese lovers, I sprinkled a few tablespoons of shredded mozarella on top as well. It was so simple to make (especially using bottled sauce) and was so yummy we each had seconds. I will be making this again soon.
This was a big crowd pleaser for vegetarians and carnivores alike, and overall pretty easy to make! I sliced the eggplant into ~1/3 inch slices then cut each slice in half before sauteeing with the onions as others suggested (skipped the salting/steaming process entirely). Since so many people talked about the recipe needing more sauce, I used 28 oz crushed tomatoes with 15 oz diced tomatoes and thought the ratio turned out well. For the yogurt, I upped the amount to ~24 oz nonfat yogurt-- everyone was so surprised that it wasn't cheese that I think I'll begin using it as a healthier substitute going forward! I baked the layered dish for 30 minutes covered before uncovering to add the topping. I needed a bit more of the breadcrumb/Parmesan mixture to cover the entire pan- probably 1/2 cup combined. Baked that for another ~10 minutes then let cool a little before serving. I will be sharing this recipe with friends and definitely making again!!
Delicious and rustic, I served with crusty garlic bread and it was a huge hit! I also followed the suggestions of others and cubed the eggplant before cooking with the onions.
I would have givin this 5 stars but I think it needs more sauce. So just increase the sauce a bit and you have a GREAT eggplant recipe.
