Hmm, I don`t know where the commenter who did not like this went wrong. I found it came out very, very well. The only thing is that I cooked the eggplant and tomato before adding spinach to preserve more nutrition in the spinach leaves. Also I prefer using the purple kind of eggplant for this recipe.
