Eggplant borani is a great substitute for tzatziki sauce on gyros! On soft pita, we piled strips of seasoned meat, fried potatoes sticks, lettuce, tomato, cucumber slices, and eggplant borani. The result was delicious! Be careful how much garlic you add, though. My husband added extra garlic and it was not a good dip for fruits and vegetables with that extra garlic. It's fabulous with fresh and warm pita or Finnish flat bread, though. So, enjoy!

Oh! And, the sauce was good with beans, too. I made a salad with cannelloni beans and topped it with eggplant borani instead of salad dressing. I really enjoyed the result. This would be excellent on sandwiches, too!
