EGGPLANT – Easy Side Dish


Eggplant is one of my favorite vegetables.  It really adds substance to a dish.  The net carb count is a bit higher than some other veggies – but worth it.

INGREDIENTS:

2 tbsp. butter, olive oil or coconut oil
1 small onion chopped
1 green pepper, diced  (Yellow pepper makes a more colorful dish)
4 tomatoes, peeled & chopped or 1 lb. can tomatoes (cut up)
1 medium to large eggplant, cubed (unpeeled)
1/2 tsp. basil
1/4 tsp. oregano
Salt & pepper as desired

DIRECTIONS:

Saute onion and green pepper in oil in a large skillet. Add chopped tomatoes and simmer a few minutes. Add eggplant, herbs and seasonings. Cook over medium heat about 15 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.

Serve hot garnished with bacon bits, as a side dish with dinner
