Loved this recipe . Very easy. And a nice presentation. While the eggplant baked I prepared the rest of the recipe so I could easily mix when the eggplant was done. Thus during the last 40 minutes of baking we were able to enjoy the start of the meal. However, I didn't understand "Partially peel eggplants in 1-inch strips, using a vegetable peeler"? Peel lengthwise? Peel around? Peel 1 inch strip and leave 1 plain strip all around the eggplant? And why?
