       Title: EGGPLANT ROMA
  Categories: Vegetables, Deal-a-meal, Sparkie
       Yield: 1 servings
  
       4 ts Olive oil
       1 lg Clove garlic, minced
     1/2 c  Chopped onion
       2 c  Peeled, cubed eggplant
   1 1/2 c  Peeled, seeded, chopped
            Tomatoes
            Salt and pepper
   1 1/2 ts Balsamic vinegar
     1/4 c  Chopped, fresh basil or
            1-1/2 ts dried basil
       4 ts Toasted sesame seeds
  
    1.  In medium skillet, heat olive oil, and saute
   garlic and onion until
        onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
   
    2.  Stir in eggplant and tomato.  Sprinkle with salt
   and pepper.
   
    3.  Cover and cook over low heat until eggplant is
   tender, about 10
        minutes.
   
    4.  Stir in vinegar and basil.
   
    5.  Cook uncovered 5 minutes longer, stirring
   occasionally.
   
    6.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
   
    NOTE: 1 teaspoon sesame seeds = 15 calories (1 joker).
   
    If you can't find balsamic vinegar, (I hope you can
   because it is delicious), try malt vinegar or red wine
   vinegar, or natural rice vinegar.
     Be adventurous.  There are lots of vinegars out
   there.
   
    Know your vegetables.  Choose an eggplant that has a
   smooth, glossy surface.  Avoid an eggplant that is
   dull looking and/or soft.
