This dish is a combination of two other dishes, the baked eggplant with chickpeas and the okra stew (you can tell we are not very original with our dish names). For the eggplant dish, we start by cooking the sauce which is made up of chickpeas, carrots, onions, bell peppers, garlic, tomato paste, salt, pepper, and other top secret spices. This yummy sauce is then ladled over a bed of thickly cut discs of eggplant and then baked. The okra stew is made in a similar fashion. Baby okra is stewed with carrots, onions, bell peppers, garlic, tomato paste, salt, pepper, and other spices. A big scoop of each of these items is served over a bed of rice Pilate and comes with cafe Beirut salad, assorted Lebanese pickles, and some pita bread.
