I have set a personal goal to add more vegetables to my diet. I have never cooked eggplant before and wanted to try something with it. I looked in my cupboards/fridge and this yummy dish is what I came up with. I'll be making this a regular edition to my meal planning.

Ingredients

  • 1 small
    cooking onion
  • 1/2 tsp
    granulated garlic
  • 1 large
    eggplant, sliced
  • 1 can(s)
    tomatoes, canned italian-style and diced
  • 1 c
    frozen sliced, mixed bell peppers
  • 1 to 2 tsp
    cayenne pepper (or to taste)
  • 2 Tbsp
    parmesan cheese

How to Make Spicy Stewed Eggplant

Step-by-Step

  1. Sautee the onion and garlic in olive oil in a deep, heavy pot until onion is translucent. Do not let the onion get browned.
  2. Peel a large section of the skin from front and back of the eggplant, leaving a strip of the skin on both sides. Then slice the eggplant thinly, leaving a bit of the colorful skin on the edges.
  3. Put a layer of the sliced eggplant on top of the sauteed onion. Spoon some of the canned tomatoes over the eggplant. Repeat layering until all the eggplant and tomato have be used up.
  4. Let this simmer over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, checking regularly. Then add the frozen peppers and sprinkle the cayenne pepper over the top.
  5. Let this simmer on medium-low until the eggplant is soft, stirring a few times.
  6. Serve alone with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese as a side dish, or serve over pasta or rice as a main dish.
