  3. Cut your sweet potato into equal pieces. About 1.5 inches.
  4. In a bowl or on the same baking sheet, add all of the spices & mix, making sure that the sweet potato pieces are covered well.
  5. Bake for about 35 minutes, or until tender and browned. Times may vary by your oven.

Comfort food that is healthy & delicious! It's not ready in 10 minutes but it is worth the wait. A version of my mom's version of Stewed Eggplant. Watch me make it here.

Stewed Eggplant - Guyanese/West Indian (Vegan)

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

35 minutes

Stewed Eggplant - Guyanese/West Indian (Vegan)

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small *wiri wiri pepper or 1/2 tsp chili flakes
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 cardamom pods, seeds out & ground or 1/4 tsp pre-ground cardamom seeds
  • 2-3 small tomatoes, chopped, fresh or canned
  • 2 medium eggplant, any variety that you prefer, cut into 1 to 1.5 inch cubes
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tsp salt or 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp vegetable or coconut oil
  • 3/4 to 1 cup of hot water

Instructions

  1. Chop all of your vegetable & set them aside.
  2. If using whole cardamom, remove and grind in a mortar & pestle or a coffee grinder.
  3. Measure out the rest of your ingredients & set them aside.
  4. In a large skillet or pot, heat the oil, on a medium-high heat.
  5. Add the onions, sauteing for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the garlic, cumin, cardamom & peppers cooking for another 2-ish minutes.
  7. Add the tomatoes, cooking for another 5-7 minutes. Fresh tomatoes may double the time on this part of the recipe.
  8. You want the mixture to be on the dry side & start to turn into a chunkier paste.
  9. Add the eggplant, stirring well.
  10. Add the ketchup, salt or soy sauce. Mix well.
  11. Cook for 2 minutes, before adding the hot water. Stir & cover with a lid.
  12. Cooking for 20-ish minutes. You can check halfway through to make sure that the liquid has not evaporated. If it has add another 1/4 cup of hot water.
  13. Eggplant should be very soft at the end of the 20 minutes. Check for seasoning. Adjust if needed.
  14. This is a shorter version, of my mom's. Her eggplant would cook for a good hour or more.
  15. Remove the lid and continue cooking until most of the liquid is evaporated. About 10-15 minutes.
  16. Serve hot over rice, with roti or as your vegetable side.

Notes

*Wiri wiri peppers are a Guyanese (South America) pepper, although it is grown in various places around the globe. A 100000 to 350000 on the scoville scale. Full of heat & tons of flavour. Some are mild, the others surprise you with the intensity.
