  1. In a saucepan, saute the onion in the oil until it has lightly browned. Add the garlic, salt, pepper and turmeric. Add rice and broth, bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for 30 minutes.
  2. While the rice is cooking, peel and cut the eggplant into 1/4-inch slices. Sprinkle with salt and set aside for about 10 minutes. Rinse and pat dry.
  3. Lightly salt the eggplant and spray with oil. Brown both sides in a hot skillet, set aside.
  4. Once the rice is cooked, mix in yogurt and transfer mixture to a large shallow casserole dish. Spread the navy and garbanzo beans over the rice and then top with layer of eggplant and chopped tomatoes.
  5. Bake uncovered in a preheated 350 F oven for about 20 minutes.

Takes a little while to do the prep and to cook, but WELL worth it. The texture of everything combined is absolutely perfect! To give it a little extra flavor I did 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper,...

I have heart issues, so this recipe with low fat and low salt is just right for me. I will add more spices as other reviews suggested.

Excellent! Used regular brown rice. Substituted sour cream instead of yogurt. Added more spices-more turmeric, chili powder and cumin. Topped with cheese. Overall a delicious vegetarian recipe.

I really liked this recipe! I did make just a couple changes. I added mushrooms and used rice pilaf instead of Uncle Ben's. I also wish I had kept the skins on the eggplant for better presentati...
