  • 3 eggplants
  • 3 potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 3 tomatoes (the juice)
  • ½ cup olive oil

  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp curry

  • In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil along with spices. Once it heats up, sauté the onion at a medium to high temperature, after 2 minutes add the potatoes, after 2 minutes the eggplants, and increase the temperature. After 15 minutes, add the garlic, sauté for 2 minutes, and then add the tomato paste and tomato juice, the wine, and finally the agave syrup (or sugar). Cover and simmer for 20 minutes (or until the potatoes are cooked), and it's done!
