HB's Grains Eggplant dish

  • Organic grains (brown rice, amaranth, quinoa, spelt)

  • Organic lentils (brown, red)

  • Giovanni's Caponata brand Eggplant Appetizer (eggplant, tomato paste, water, olives, celery, onions, capers, wine vinegar, sugar, corn and olive oil, salt, and spices)

  • Organic non-irradiated granulated garlic powder (McFadden Farm brand)

  • Blackstrap molasses (Tree of Life brand; unsulphured)

  • Liquid Aminos (Bragg's brand; contains naturally salty extracts from soybeans and purified water only)

  • Annie's Naturals Shiitake & Sesame vinaigrette (expeller pressed canola oil, cider vinegar, soy sauce, water, expeller pressed toasted sesame oil, toasted sesame seeds, shiitake mushrooms, xanthan gum)

  • Garnished with organic seedless raisins (Tree of Life) and pistachios.




  • Note 1: Locally Giovanni's little can is available at SuperFresh. Those with a little time can stir fry their own ingredients, and either bake the eggplant separately or broil or substitute something else for eggplant (e.g. zucchini/squash, sweet potatoes,....) the recipe's title is allowed to change to "Grains and ____"

  • Note 2: The above variant is on the 'subtle flavors' and mild variety, but can be varied with adding something more spicy if preferred. E.g. a little more garlic, or a little chili, or the like; also, a nicely aromatic tomato sauce instead of -- or better -- to augment the Giovanni's would be a nice tomato base for the above recipe.
