Eggplant Sausage Stuff

19 Oct

Bit of a hodge-podge but it’s tasty with torilla chips, rice or pasta.

Time: 2 hours-ish

  • An eggplant
  • A zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 4 links of sweet Italian sausage, chopped up (or whatever you have)
  • scallions, chives or onion, minced
  • +2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 1/2 can or less chicken broth
  • 2 T (or so) tomato paste
  • Hot sauce of your preference (sriracha)

Pierce the eggplant a bunch of times and then roast it whole on a baking sheet at 350 F until it’s soft and starts to collapse (approximately an hour, maybe a bit more).  Let it cool until you can touch it, then slice it in half length-wise.  Scoop out the seeds and discard.  Scoop out the eggplant flesh and chop.

Saute (not steam!) the zucchini.  Season with salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme.  Add onions and  garlic.  Then add eggplant and sausage.  Continue to saute until everything cooks most of the way through.

Add tomato paste, chicken sauce and more spices (including hot sauce) to taste.

Let everything simmer for approximately 15 minutes (or until it tastes right).
