That sounds so delicious, I would tuck into with a fresh loaf of rustic bread of a bowl of long grain (or brown) rice. Thank-you for posting this all veggie recipe, Marmalady

I think I'm going to make this next weekend, with the inclusion of some bell peppers. I love how they compliment eggplant and zucchini with that hint of natural sweetness. I agree, I can't get enough of all the fresh veggies and fruit that in the stores right now! (Especially strawberries and blueberries! Yum )
