Spicy Stewed Eggplant Recipe @pinch

A fabulous way to get veggies into your diet. We really enjoyed this eggplant recipe. It does have a kick, so go light on the red pepper if you're sensitive. The eggplant soaks up the flavors of the bell peppers, tomatoes, and onions while it cooks. Super easy to prepare, this is a great vegetarian dinner. I have set a personal goal to add more vegetables to my diet. I have never cooked eggplant before and wanted to try something with it. I looked in my cupboards/fridge and this yummy dish is what I came up with. I'll be making this a regular addition to my meal planning.
