  3. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  4. 1 medium shallot, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  5. 1 large celery rib, cut into 1/4-inch dice

  9. 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  10. 1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds, chopped

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the eggplant and cook over moderately high heat, stirring often, until the eggplant is tender and browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer the eggplant to a bowl.
