Slowcooker Eggplant Stew

Apparently watching the Disney movie “Ratatouille” was a life changing experience for N. Now he wants to be a chef and loves anything including eggplant. We still make ratatouille from time to time, but this is a lot easier to prepare since the slowcooker does most of the work. I am calling this a stew because it can be a meal by itself, but it is also great spooned over couscous or brown rice.


1 eggplant

2 cups of chopped tomatoes or one can of diced tomatoes, drained

1 ½ cups of baby carrots

16 ounce can of chickpeas, drained

16 ounce can of kidney beans, drained

1 cup of diced onions, fresh or frozen

1 cup sliced celery

3 garlic cloves

8 ounce of tomato paste

½ teaspoon oregano

½ teaspoon basil

A pinch of pepper and salt

A pinch of red pepper flakes

1 bay leaf


Dice and peel the eggplant into sizeable chunks. Add all ingredients to a crock pot, then cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Remember to remove the bay leaf before serving.

    Anything with eggplant is on my “have to try” list. I can live on zucchini and eggplant until my second meal in a row of either or both then I crave chicken, which I can live on until…

      I love zucchini too. I have a weird kitchen gadget that makes them into spirals and we use them in place of noodles. Do you grow your own? I am trying to convince my hubby to do one in the spring. Eggplant and zucchini will definitely be in it.

        I used to but had to give that up. But my daughter has a good size garden and always shares sp I usually have a couple of each around. Easy to grow but take a lot of room. If you have the room to spare I heartily recommend a garden. I still do less space loving plants in containers on my patio. Every now and then I actually get to eat something from there!
