Delicious spicy roasted veggies! The many spices are very visible in this dish. The chickpeas are a nice addition, and harden a bit after being roasted which is a nice addition to the overall texture of this dish.

I thought this was very nice, but it didn't knock my socks off. I think I'm not a huge fan of turmeric, and I thought the taste of turmeric predominated in this (I like it when it's one of many spices, but not when it's the main event). I gave it the taste test after 45 minutes, and it really didn't work for me -- but roasting it for another 40 minutes made it much more to my liking. (That, and a good sprinkling of salt.) I'd recommend that other people try this to see if they like it, but I'm not sure I'll make it again. But thanks so much for posting this!
Very nice dish!!! Unfortunately, my grocer ran out of eggplant the day I was there, so I had to make an emergency substitute with a plantain. Still, it turned out just like a dish I had at a Moroccan restaurant. I served these with #15580 Grilled Moroccan Chicken and the flavors just complimented each other SO WELL!!! Thanks for sharing, I will make these again.
This is a delicious recipe if you want a new veggie favorite! Instead of turmeric I did 1 teaspoon curry powder. My one year old daughter loved the new flavors as well!
