  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)

  • 1 piece fresh ginger, about 1 inch, grated

  • 1 tablespoon curry powder

Directions

Wash and trim eggplant. Do not peel. Quarter and remove seeds. Cut into 1-inch cubes. Eggplant should yield about 3 cups. Wash and trim zucchini. Cut into 1-inch cubes. You should have about 1 cup. Heat olive oil in a large pot. Add garlic, onion, and eggplant. Saute until eggplant begins to soften, about five minutes. Add zucchini, ginger, curry powder, mushrooms, and diced tomato.
