NOTES : The low-fat kitchen reduces fat and calories by roasting instead of
frying. Garlic puree dresses the salad. "Often eggplant slices are fried
and when they are, they absorb a great deal of oil. For this salad
almost a dip that works well with bruschette - eggplant slices are roasted
to bring out their smoky flavor. No extra oil is needed to dress the
eggplant when you mix it with a roasted garlic puree." -DD
