Late Summer Veggie-Medley
**This is great on it’s own, with a leafy green salad/lettuce wraps, or over hearty whole grains (I’m not currently on a Reboot so I served it with quinoa!)
(**Cook’s Note: All of the produce, except the Lemon, came from my CSA farm share – Green Thumb Organic Farm in Long Island, NY)
1 eggplant / cut into small cubes
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes / cut in half
1 onion / chopped
2-3 Leeks / chopped (white and light green parts
½ cup roasted peppers (roast your own, or rinse jarred peppers) / chopped
Juice of 1 Lemon
½ cup water
salt & pepper to taste
– In large saute pan, cook eggplant, onions and leeks over medium heat in small amount oil until eggplant is soft. 6-8 minutes.
– Add tomatoes, peppers, water and lemon juice – cook for another 10-15 minutes, until very soft and saucy.
– Add fresh parsley, salt and pepper to taste.
– Serve with leafy green salad or over hearty grain, like quinoa or bulgur wheat.
Makes 4-6 servings.
