Eggplant, Potato, Baby Spinach & Tomato Stew

4 Mar

There’s been a few cool nights lately and with the decrease in temperature comes the temptation to indulge in wintery dishes. My stew is flavoursome and healthy and the only thing I served with it was a dollop of natural yoghurt.

4 medium potatoes

3 large cloves of garlic

1 large eggplant

1 large brown onion

2 handfuls of baby spinach leaves

2 tins of tomatoes


Extra virgin olive oil

A handful of fresh mint leaves

A handful of fresh coriander

Peel the potatoes and cut each one into 12 even chunks. Slice the eggplant into similar sized chunks to the potatoes. Fry the potatoes until golden and set aside. Fry the eggplant for a few minutes and set aside. Cut the onion into strips, the garlic into slices and saute until softened. Return the potato and eggplant to the saucepan and add all of the tomatoes and salt to taste.

Simmer for 45 mins or until the potatoes are fork tender. The eggplant will break down and thicken the sauce but if you want it to remain in pieces let the potatoes cook for a while before adding the eggplant to the sauce. Just before serving, stir in the spinach, mint and coriander.
