Directions

  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.

I made a few changes: excluded the onion, substituted kidney beans for red bean, substituted cumin for turmeric, added cheddar cheese The rice and yogurt mixture was a little bland. If I make this again I'll definitely use the onion and probably add a little more spice. I think the cheese was a necessary addition though. Overall, I think this is a good solid, healthy vegetarian meal.

Made this dish when I had some friends over. Since several people noted that it was rather bland I kicked up the spices, adding turmeric and paprika along with 1/2 a head of garlic. This seemed to give it a bit more pep, however I think I would season it even more a 2nd time around. Also, the left-overs heated up extremely well.

I really liked it. I thought the flavor of the vegetables really came out and I loved the dense yet fluffy texture of the rice. The flavor wasn't strong, so next time I might try to add a bit more spice, or some cheese as another rater suggested.
