This recipe was so unbelievably good -- seriously, it is like a 10 star recipe. It's a the perfect mix of sweet, spicy, garlicy and gingery. If you do not eat honey agave will probably work. I served this with some steamed asparagus. If you love eggplant you would be foolish to not make this recipe as soon as possible and if you do not love eggplant this dish is so good that it may change your mind.
