Recipe: Eggplant with Black Beans

This recipe is a mildly adaptation of a recipe I found on sparkpeople. It's not too hard, but it does take awhile to cook the eggplant.

Note: We are now calling this recipe "Eggplant Chili" in our house.

2 Tbsp olive or canola oil
1 eggplant peeled and chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced

1 can petite diced tomatoes, ~15 oz, slightly drained
1 can black beans*
1 tbsp chili powder

freshly ground pepper to taste

cooked white or brown rice (or quinoa)

Heat oil in a large skillet or wok. Add chopped eggplant, onion, red bell pepper, and garlic. Cook until eggplant is done (soft and color has darkened throughout). Add tomatoes, black beans, chili powder, and pepper. Cook until heated through. Serve on rice.

Makes 3 - 4 servings, and is awesome reheated!

You can also substitute for the beans (or include in addition to beans) cubed extra firm tofu that has been pan fried.

* I like to occasionally mention that you should rinse canned beans very well before using, to remove most of the unpleasant side effect of eating beans (and the salt).

I just found your blog and I have to say, I love it. Maybe lazy or too busy for some of the recipes I've found out there, either way, I love what you have to offer. I hope to come back with one of my favorites to share. This eggplant with black beans...Love it and will try it tonight.

Thanks.

This sounds really great. I cooked a huge batch of this in my stockpot, and it turned out great. Now I have extras to take to lunch all week. By the way, I like the option of how lazy to be while cooking. Really funny
