Mirza Ghasemi
This traditional Persian dish is not Southern; it’s still very tasty and one of my favorites.

-3 Roma Tomatoes
-4 Cloves Garlic, chopped
-4 Eggs
-1/4 to 1/3 cup Olive Oil
-Salt
-Pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Bake Eggplant for 50 minutes; peel and chop eggplant. Bring water to a boil; boil tomatoes for 3 minutes. Peel & Chop tomatoes.

Put oil and garlic in a pan; fry until golden. Add eggplant and fry for 4 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook for another 4 minutes or until veggies start to brown a bit. Beat eggs well with fork in a small bowl. Half-cook eggs in a different pan and then add the eggs to the veggie mixture. Cook for another 2 minutes.

Serve with Pita Chips, Rice, or even tortilla chips. Very delicious!
