Eggplant is a highly polarizing vegetable. You either love it or loathe it; there is no in-between. Whereas, a delicious vegetarian stew is an appetizing comfort food everyone enjoys.

Combine the two into an eggplant stew recipe with vegetables cooked in a rich Middle Eastern style and you get a delicious veggie stew you just can’t resist.

Some Useful Tips for Eggplant Stew Preparation

eggplant stew ingredients

  • Make sure that the eggplant you buy is just ripe and neither too raw nor over-ripe and seedy to ensure a delicious vegetarian stew.
  • Use fresh vegetables for a healthy and tasty veggie stew.
  • When you chop the potatoes for the vegan stew, make sure that the thickness of the slices isn’t too much. Keep them around 3mm.
  • When you add the extra olive oil while cooking the eggplant veggie stew, make sure that it is a generous helping. This is because eggplant absorbs a lot of oil, so if you use less oil, the eggplant stew recipe will be too bland and not develop the Middle Eastern
  • The easiest way to remove the stalk of the sweet peppers for the vegan stew is to push the stalk inside to break it and then, pulling it out.
