Eggplant Onion and Tomato Stew

Clean Eating Eggplant Tomato and Onion Stew - Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo-Friendly | The Healthy Family and Home

This Eggplant Tomato and Onion Stew is really simple to make with a minimal ingredient list, fresh veggies and it can be enjoyed plain or over quinoa, brown rice or even pasta.

I came across this recipe after browsing through a Woman’s Day magazine while visiting my parents and decided to make it for them for dinner that night since my dad is a big fan of eggplant.

Not only did I make it for him that night, but he asked if I would make it again!

So after making a grocery trip for more eggplant, I made it a second time for him before we left from our visit because he liked it so much and we had it twice it one week.

It’s a “one-pot” meal  and basically after dicing your fresh veggies and simmering them for about 20 minutes, it’s ready to enjoy.

And not only is it a delicious meal to serve for “Meatless Mondays”, it’s also vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and even paleo-friendly.

Tip #1:  In the photo above, I didn’t add the 1/2 cup of water listed in the recipe this time so it made a thicker stew.   If you prefer a thicker stew, omit the 1/2 cup of water.  If you prefer a thinner stew, add the 1/2 cup water.

Tip #2:  Adjust the Himalayan pink salt salt and cayenne pepper to your preference.

Tip #3:  I like to use organic tomato sauce in a jar to avoid canned tomato sauce (due to the BPA lined cans), but feel free to use your favorite brand tomato sauce.

Tip #4:  I like to use fresh tomatoes to avoid canned tomatoes (due to the BPA lined cans), but feel free to use canned diced tomatoes if you prefer.

    It’s so funny how people get about eggplant but quickly become addicted to its vegetable-gray goodness. This looks absolutely amazing!

      Hi Hanna! I know exactly what you mean! I used to hate eggplant and not even because I had tasted it and didn’t like it…I just decided I didn’t like it because of it’s appearance lol!

      But now I love it!

      Thanks for stopping by ;)

    you mentioned not using tomato paste- but I am unclear how I can substitute for this. I prefer everything to be homemade, so do I just use diced tomatoes? and how much? thanks!

    • Karielyn says

      Hi there Sue! You could omit the tomato paste and use additional diced tomatoes which would work to give it the “tomato-ey” flavor. I would add an extra 1 cup of diced tomatoes to substitute the 8 ounces of tomato paste.

      Thanks for the question and I hope you enjoy the recipe ;)
