Eggplant Pilaf with Pistachios and Cinnamon

Eggplant Pilaf, originally uploaded by riptideredsf.
This colorful concoction is what became of the other half of the eggplant and my day off. The recipe comes from Gourmet via I used the Basmati Rice Medley from Trader Joes. This pilaf also includes fresh dill, tomatoes and dried cranberries. The recipe called for dried currants but I didn't have any but I always have dried cranberries and oddly, I had pistachios. Yay pantry!
This is definitely a keeper. The sweetness of the cranberries with the cinnamon is gorgeous. It was great this morning topped with a poached egg and shaved parmesean.
