Eggplant Tower with Mashed White Beans

"The Eggplant Tower is an instant Soul Food Love classic. It’s a vegetarian dish that is stick-to-the-ribs hearty. It’s dramatic enough for a dinner party, but cozy and comforting enough to make dinner for one on a cold and rainy winter night a pleasure." -Alice Randall and Caroline Randall WIlliams
