I made this meal a couple of days ago. It is eggplant stew, which is wonderful, with three kinds of mushrooms in it: oyster, shiitake, and crimini. I have to be honest, it was horrible! I stewed the mushrooms seperately with garlic first, then added them to the stew. It was like chewing on your nose or something gross. I have always thought I was a person who LOVED mushrooms, but that changed with this meal. Blech!
