Spiced Eggplant-Lentil Salad with Mango
From EatingWell: May/June 2010
Spiced eggplant, lentils and mangoes combine deliciously in this Indian-inspired vegetarian salad. Customize the spiciness of this by choosing mild, medium or hot versions of salsa, chili powders and curry powder. The flavor is even better when the salad is prepared ahead. Recipe by Nancy Baggett for EatingWell.

This recipe includes honey so made as is, is not vegan. Looks delicious though and since I myself am not a vegan, I'll be making it soon!
This is my new staple meal. Sooo good. The mango added such a perfect punch, I was so surprised. PLus i've never made eggplant before in my life, and this was so easy and tasty! Just Brilliant
I was looking for an eggplant recipe as a main dinner dish on our vegetarians days, so that my meat-lovers did not suffer from the lack of meat that much. All my previous eggplant dishes were too bland, or too bitter, or too oily, except for greek recipes, but I needed some variety, too. My son does not like lentils and curry, but a combination of eggplant, lentils (I used green), lime-cilantro dressing, and mango work beautifully together, so my son has had this dish with no objection. I am going to play with spices a little bit to adjust to my family's taste, but it's definitely a keeper, especially in winter, when grill is not used.
What a nutritious and delicious meal. My husband gave it five stars. Will definitely use this for our next couples beach potluck.
