Eggplant and Peppers in Black Bean Garlic Sauce

Delicious! :) Makes 4 servings as a main dish. It can easily serve 6-8 if you add fried or extra firm tofu, slices of chicken breast, or white fish, and it’s delicious that way, too. I’ve also added sliced cabbage to the vegetables.

Tasty and easy. I like a bit more kick and would add more of each of the sauces and garlic. Left out the oil and served over brown rice. I also added tofu to make it a complete meal. All together a satisfying meal. Thanks for posting.
