Begin by chopping your eggplant into 2" chunks. I peeled my eggplant, but you can leave it unpeeled if you want.

Slice the zucchini & summer squash - I used 1/4" slices. Chop the onion, crush the garlic.

In a stew pot, brown the garlic & onion in the olive oil. Add

Next, add the can of tomatoes and bring to a bubble over medium heat.

Add the eggplant and reduce heat to low. Cook for 45 minutes.

Add the zucchini and squash and cook an addition 30 minutes, or until vegetables are to your desired tenderness.

The original recipe suggested adding mushrooms & chickpeas, but I didn't so it's not in this recipe. Her original recipe, by Revasean, is simply named Eggplant Stew, and is the basis of this recipe.

I would say this makes 6 good sized servings and would be great served with a nice salad.

Number of Servings: 6
