I love hearty stews like this on chilly nights. They smell so nice bubbling away in the kitchen!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a bit of olive oil in a large saucepan and sauté the onion, mushrooms and chilli pepper for a couple minutes.
  2. Add the eggplant and continue cooking over a medium-low heat for about five minutes, until the eggplant starts to soften.
  3. Add in the cumin, balsamic vinegar, bacon and red pepper.
  4. Cook until the bacon starts to colour, then add in the chopped tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, red wine and stock.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat down, three-quarters cover the pot and simmer for about 20 minutes or until you are happy with the thickness of the sauce.
  7. Check the seasoning and serve with a dollop of yogurt or over some cooked basmati rice.

This was a bit spicy for us and it also didn't look very appetizing.

Great depth of flavor and perfect for a cold winter's night. You can almost feel all those vegetables doing you good!
