Tastes epecially good the second day, flavours mingled. I love eggplant, zicchini, peppers with a lot of spice. To add some body, black beans make this great vegetarian dish delicious!

    I bought an eggplant because I read they were very high in fiber. I wasn't quite sure how I wanted to use it and then I found this recipe. Wow! Loved it. I don't feel guilty eating it and it tastes great. (I really think I am a closet vegetarian....and this comes from a butcher's daughter!!!) - 2/11/08

    It was good, but 1 tbsp is WAY TOO MUCH chili powder, thank goodness I left out the crushed red pepper. I will try it again with a little bit of chicken, per my husbands request and about 1/2 the chili powder. - 1/3/10

  • Nice! Thanks for the great recipe. I love the chili kick -- it's not too much, I added a dash of tabasco to mine too :) but I also used 3 zucchini (I had them in the house) so it needed more seasoning. - 10/21/12

  • With everything ready in the garden I could use fresh veggies. Made this recipe exactly as specified. I found it to be bland & ended up doubling the chili powder, adding cumin and cilantro to make it palatable. I love the fresh veggies and I love black beans but the combination needed some punch. - 10/16/12

  • I've had eggplant go bad on many an occasion. Planned to specifically make it right away. It was great! I paid some attention to the reviewers that felt that there was too much chili powder and reduced the amount. I will top it with the sour cream when I heat leftovers. - 9/1/11

  • Not a huge eggplant fan so was looking for ways to use it with other ingredients. Really liked the flavor of the combination of veggies and beans. Had as a side dish but will definitely try with chicken or over brown rice as a meal. I modified the quantities a bit and cut the oil in 1/2. - 5/23/11

  • I hate when I can't tell what the size of a serving should be - assumed 1 cup - got 7. Added a T of cumin and topped it with a quarter cup of FF Greek yogurt and had it over brown rice. Very tasty and filling. - 4/10/11

  • I found this while hunting for a black bean side dish, and it's definitely a keeper, with grated asiago on top! We like spice, so we used diced tomatoes w/ green chilies and a whole poblano pepper for the heat, but cut the chili powder to 1/2 tsp. I agree that 1T chili powder is way too much! - 2/25/11

  • I put logged this in on today's dinner & I'm excited to try it. I've NEVER cooked eggplant before. I will be adding some chicken to the dish, so I can increase my protein. :) - 1/18/11

  • This also makes a great side dish for a bit of roast chicken. A nice dollop of fat-free sour cream or low-fat cream cheese makes an alternative to parmsean. Very versatile, too, as you can add any other veg that may be languising in the crisper... Will definitely make again! - 1/16/11

  • Delicious! I started adding canned Tyson chicken to get some more protein with this meal and it is great. My husband even loves it. - 11/7/10

  • This was AMAZING!!!! I didn't have any zucchini, so I just left it out. I used a big can of crushed tomatoes, and instead of chili flakes, I added a seeded fresh jalapeno. Also, I had some leeks, so I used those instead of the onions. I will DEFINITELY keep this in my recipe file!!! - 10/26/10

  • Thank you so much! I will definitely be trying this. I decided to become a vegan & bought a variety of fruits/vegs, but I then got sick. I have been in the bed and some of my stuff is starting to go bad. I don't want to waste that eggplant b/c it's not cheap! Thank you! - 2/19/10

    This was delicious! I reduced the oil by half to reduce the calories, but I think the calorie count listed may be off (too low)... the nutritional information is based on one cup beans, but there's 1 3/4 cups in a can. The sodium seems pretty low too. But I'll definitely make this again! - 5/12/08

  • I made this dish, but added only .75 tsp of chili powder and omitted the chili flakes because I had young children to feed. I put the cayenne on the table for the adults to add more if they liked. I served it over rice and skipped the parmesan. My husband had it with the cheese. Very filling! - 7/9/07

  • We skipped the parmesan topping to save calories. Even the kids liked this one, although we used minimal chile powder & no chili peppers. It's almost like a veggie stew or warm salsa. It was something different and enjoyable! - 3/15/07
