A Mediterranean eggplant stew with zucchini A Mediterranean eggplant stew with zucchini
Number of Servings: 4


    1 Medium-sized Onion, coarsely chopped
    3 Garlic Cloves, finely chopped
    1 1/2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
    1 Zucchini, peeled, coarsely chopped
    1 Cubanelle Pepper, coarsely chopped
    2 Chinese Eggplants, peeled, coarsely chopped
    3 Roma/Plum Tomatoes, coarsely chopped
    1/4 Cup Tomato Puree
    2 Teaspoons Vegetable Stock Powder
    1/4 Cup of Water
    Salt and Pepper to Taste
    Chili Flakes (Optional)


Peel eggplants lengthwise in stripes and quarter. Soak eggplants in salted cold water for 10 minutes. This removes the bitterness the eggplant may have. Eggplants floats so you'll have to submerge them by placing a smaller bowl or other weight over them in the water.

Coarsely chopped the remaining vegetables. Remove quartered eggplants from salt water, rinse, and chop coarsely.

Add onions and olive oil to a pot. On a high heat stir and sauté onions until translucent. Reduce to medium heat and add garlic. After 1 to 2 minutes add the chopped zucchini, cubanelle pepper, and eggplant. Stir in pot allowing vegetables to be coated in olive oil and absorb flavour of onions and garlic. After 1 to 2 minutes add tomato, tomato puree, vegetable stock powder, water, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir all ingredients together, cover pot with lid, and let simmer for for 10 to 15 minutes on low/medium heat. Stir occasionally. Makes 4 1-cup servings.

    I never peel my eggplants , other than that I followed this recipe. We enjoyed it and I would make this again. Oh and I skipped the olive oil. I also make my own veggie stock, not powder. - 4/23/13
