This is a recipe a co-worker and I made up after looking at several eggplant recipes at allrecipes.com. This was my first time to cook or even eat eggplant. It's not bad. raw it tastes like clover. The skin is sort of weird and i'd be ok with cutting that off. That's probably where all of the nutrients are though!
½ c. onion, finely chopped
3 cups sliced mushrooms
3 cups eggplant, diced
2 cups zucchini
7 ounces smoked sausage, Healthy Choice
6 ounces Uncle Ben's fast-cooking long grain & wild rice
