Italian Stew made with cauliflower, eggplant, and tomatoes
Ingredients
  • 9 cups of fresh chopped tomatoes (organic preferred)
  • 12-13 cups of eggplant, peeled and cubed-about 3 pounds
  • 4 cups of chopped onion, small dice
  • 1½ cups of green pepper, medium dice
  • 1 cup banana peppers (or increase above amount of green/red peppers)
  • ½ head of cauliflower, cut into florets, about 2 pounds or 7 cups
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme, or 3 tbsp fresh thyme
  • 2 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 3 tbsp dried oregano
  • 2-3 tsp salt, begin with 1½ tsp and gradually increase
  • freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley to garnish
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients into a stock pot, starting with only 1½ tsp of salt
  2. Put stew on medium heat, and cook until tomatoes begin to cook down, and mixture begins to bubble. Reduce heat to low and let simmer until veggies have softened and thickened, about 40 minutes.
  3. Season to taste, adding more salt and pepper if desired, garnish with fresh parsely. Serve on its own, with some brown rice, or season some rice with curry powder and turmeric for an indian flavor. Alternatively, you can add water or stock to thin this and create a soup.
