This week I would like to share a guest post I did for the My So Called Yoga Life Blog. Lisa, a wonderful fellow blogger runs this blog. She’s an amazing yogi and yoga teacher. I’ve been following her blog for some time now. Her passion for yoga and healthy lifestyle is truly inspiring. Lisa asked me to share with her readers a vegetarian/vegan recipe. Whether you’re a vegetarian, vegan or not it’s always a good idea to go off meat for a while. I’m not vegetarian but I’m definitely a proponent of a healthy lifestyle. So I immediately thought of a tasty meal I’ve created before that was inspired by my trip to Jamaica a few years back. The dish I came up with was a healthy vegetarian eggplant stew.
Why Vegetarian Eggplant Stew?
Last summer I was really trying to make an effort to eat less meat. I also wanted to introduce more veggies into my diet. I’ve always loved chilly and various stews. So I really wanted to put my own spin on a healthy vegetarian eggplant stew. What I love about this stew is the fact that it’s very easy to make and only requires simple ingredients. Those include: eggplant, tomatoes, onions and a bunch of great spices including cumin. It’s also essentially a one-pot dish therefore it’s very fast and convenient.
In addition what makes this stew so good is all the healthy ingredients it contains. Both eggplant and tomatoes have an abundance of vitamins and minerals you body craves. To find out all about the benefits of these veggies and to get the full recipe visit Lisa’s blog.

This looks super delicious. I love vegetarian stews. The more veggies the better
Oh yes. I love to incorporate more veggies into my diet. This stew rocks!
We eat a lot of vegetarian dishes here. I usually roast veggies, toss with pasta and drizzle with balsamic dressing. This stew sounds like something I’d love – easy to put together, healthy, yet flavorful. Will try it out.
You definitely should try it Sarah. You’re gonna want to make it all the time 😉
Absolutely a pleasure to have you write a post for my blog! Such a delicious and healthy recipe:)
The pleasure was all mine. So happy to do it. Your Yoga post is being published on the blog next week so I’m very excited about that.
I love this recipe!! Eggplant along with avocado, are my 2 favorite veggies!! I cannot wait to make it. Congrats on your collab pretty ladies 🙂
Thanks for all you kind words Niki. Glad you like the recipe 🙂
This looks delicious, I’m going to check the full post out for sure. I love eggplant, so versatile. I worked with a chef once who did something similar although he would scoop out the flesh of the eggplant and then after making it, serve it in the skin. Looked great.
Oh that sounds fantastic Matt. I bet it was yummy too.
Great recipe to try! I haven’t tasted eggplants before so this would be my first time! I can’t wait to make this!
Oh wow, you will love this recipe. It will be a great intro into eggplant for you for sure.
looks great! I love eggplant as a substitute in my vegetarian diet, so I’ll definitely be using this recipe.
That’s great to hear Kelly. Thanks so much for checking it out 🙂
This looks stunning! Love me good veggie dish so warm and lovely for the cold weather. Thanks for sharing a great post
You’re very welcome girl. Glad you like the recipe 🙂
Thanks for sharing! I’ve never really had eggplant stew but this looks yummy! Will have to try it 🙂
I hope you do Joyce Marie. I think you will really like it. Thanks for checking out the recipe.
This looks so delicious! I gained an appreciation for eggplant in Greece, so yummy!
Eggplant is a bit of an acquired taste. I started liking it because my boyfriend is Italian and his mom cooks a lot of it.
I love everything eggplant. I am sure that I would love this too.
Oh I hope you do. Thanks for checking it out.
This looks very delicious. I definitely got to try it out soon.
My fast-to-go food would be spanish omelette and white bread or better still toasted bread!
That’s great to hear Enele. And yes I love an omelette too! So yum.
I should this recipe as I never know how to cook eggplant properly. Thins thing is so tricky, can soak the whole oil in and in the end be dry.
Oh I know what you meant. I’ve never been too comfortable with eggplant but I can definitely attest that this recipe does work. The eggplant comes out so soft and juicy. It’s a great option for vegetarians to still be able to make a stew.
