Arabian Vegetable Medley (recipe)

Don’t you just love vague ‘ethnic’ recipe titles? Coming from the American Turkey Federation I’m not sure exactly how ‘Arabian’ this recipe actually is, but despite that grey area all you really need to know is that it is very very good!

    We’re going to try the cinnamon on roasted veggies other than sweeter squash and sweet potatoes. It’s got to be good!

    well…it’s got eggplant, garlic, cinnamon and chickpeas. I’d say it qualifies as Arabian of some kind :-D looks really good though.
