I'm not into food trends but it's hard not to be influenced by what you read. And it seems like everyone is going vegan. I couldn't never do it though; it's too restrictive. I used to be a vegetarian in high school, but I quit, a long time ago and I would never go back. Truthfully, I can't even imagine a day without meat (or a life without sashimi). I love vegetables though and somehow this vegetarian dish really stands out. It's perfect on its own; no need for prosciutto. Taken from Nigella Lawson's cookbook, Nigella Bites, I think it will win over anyone, even those who think they don't like eggplant. It may not be the easiest to prepare (too many steps) but it's well worth the effort if you are willing.
