I think this stew is so delish! The combination of vegetables is so tasty and it’s also super nutritious and filling… If I know I have busy day coming up, I’ll make a double batch so that I can enjoy the leftovers the next day. And, to be honest, it actually tastes even better after a night in the fridge… Win win! ; )
approx. 30 min
3 days in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer
large (soup) pot
3 cloves garlic
1 large red onion
1 medium eggplant
2 large tomatoes
170 g (5 oz.) tomato paste
150 ml (1/2 cup + 3 tbsp) water
400 g (2 cups) chickpeas, cooked from dried or canned
20 g (0.7 oz.) fresh basil
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp sea salt or Himalayan salt
feta, to taste (optional)
Finely chop the garlic, onion, zucchini, eggplant and tomatoes. Heat a bit of oil in a frying pan on high heat and sauté the onion until glassy. Then add the remainder of the vegetables. Stir well. Add the tomato paste continue cooking. After stirring for about a minute, add the water. Next, add the curry powder, black pepper and sea salt. Simmer for 20 minutes, reducing the heat to low. If the mixture dries out too quickly, add a bit more water – just make sure that it doesn’t get too soggy. Chop the basil and sprinkle it on top of the stew, and transfer to deep plates or bowls to serve.
