I ran across this Paper Chef challenge at Scottish Cow. Whats really cool about these challenges is that they give you a list of ingredients and you have to produce a recipe. Like Iron Chef. This was my kind of challenge. I just read about it last night and just so happened to have all the ingredients.

The list of ingredients is as follows:
rice wrapper

Rice Wrapper Filling

eggplant, about two cups roasted
juice of one lemon
s and p
1 tablespoon tahini
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove minced garlic
2 cups quinoa

Roast eggplant in a 450 degree oven. Peel and cut in strips and roast until softened. Place in a covered dish with a tablespoon of olive oil. The steam will soften them further.

Place garlic in processor, mince. Add eggplant and pulse. Dont puree. Remove and stir in remainder of ingredients.

Place rice wrappers in hot water in bowl to soften, one at a time. Place filling in lower third of wrapper. Roll once, fold in sides and continue to roll.

Cover with a damp paper towel as your oll the remainder or cover in plastic wrap.

For the yogurt portion of this recipe you can follow my link to raita.

Like the eggplant you used here.
This list I thought was especially hard to get my mind around. But it's incredible how everybody came up with something so different!
Great rolls.
