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.
