Zucchini & Eggplant Stew

I feel like I need to apologize for this post if you don’t like zucchini or eggplant, but I just can’t seem to use it all up! It is seriously like the magical vegetable combination that just keeps returning after you take it out of your fridge. If you have partial zucchinis and eggplants leftover from other dishes, this is a great way to put them to use and eliminate wasting them. Once again, please bear with me; I have felt like I have eaten zucchini and/or eggplant for every meal (even at work!) for the last month!

Stews are very simple to make and it is hard to go wrong, which is great! The tomato paste makes this stew thicker and the seasoning gives it a nice Italian feel. If it is cooling off a bit at night where you are too, this is even better. A great way to warm up. I love making garlic toast to dip in my stew as well.

    Wow! So good and So easy! A neighbor gave me extra zucchini and eggplant from their garden and I found this website! Can’t wait to try some other recipes. I didn’t have sriracha so I used ground cayenne and it was still great!
