I want to like eggplant. It's healthy and stuff. There aren't all that many purple foods, and I do believe in eating as many colors as possible. But it's just so... seedy. And mushy. I cannot with this.
Because I had an eggplant and some butternut squash to use up, I searched for recipes that used both in the same dish to save time. I settled on a coconut curry with chickpeas based on components of several similar recipes I found online.
It turned out pretty tasty, quite healthy, and nice served over brown rice.
I used chopped fresh onion, butternut squash, and eggplant. I cooked them in a little oil to start.
Then I drained the tomatoes and chickpeas below, and dumped these three cans into the mix.
Then I added red curry paste to taste. Coconut curry dishes are really that simple!
I love that this dish ended up accidentally vegan and gluten-free!
