Aubergine (Eggplant) Stew with Feta

Aubergine (Eggplant) Stew with Feta

This is a great vegetarian, low carb meal that never disappoints! It is rich, full of flavor and tastes great hot or cold.

Adjusting To The Word “Aubergine”…

Having lived in America, on and off, for the last 12 years, I have to get used to saying “Aubergine” again. It’s difficult for me to change to different words again, but I’m trying… mainly for my kids sake.

Whether you call it Aubergine or Eggplant, this vegetable is one of my faves! I buy it nearly every week as it is SO yummy and versatile! Speaking of something versatile, this stew is great on it’s own or you can even add in some ground beef/lamb, zucchini or peppersdelicious!

Peel On Or Off…

It’s entirely up to you. Older aubergines tend to have tougher skin (and the skin can be a wee bit bitter), so in this case, I always peel it before chopping it up. However, when I buy the younger ones, the skin is soft and really doesn’t affect the taste or texture of this dish.

Spice It Up…

I make this dish for my whole family, so I don’t make it spicy. But, if you like things spicy, add a diced red chili pepper to it in Step 2, to amp up the heat.

Serve It With…

This is a great main dish or side dish (depending how much you all eat). Plus, it is great hot or cold. It goes well with:
