Hungarian Eggplant


Here’s the perfect recipe to make use of garden fresh summer eggplant. This dish is adapted from a traditional Hungarian dish called Pörkölt, but it highlights healthy eggplant rather than animals, transforming it into delicious compassionate cuisine. The slow cooking allows it to really soak up the flavors of the wine and spices.

Ingredients:

1 large eggplant, chopped into large chunks
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, chopped fine
2 medium-size sweet peppers
1 large tomato
4 small potatoes, chopped in 1/2-inch pieces
1 cup red wine (optional*)
1 cup vegetable broth
1 tsp. paprika
4 sprigs fresh marjoram, more to garnish
salt & pepper (to taste)

* If you choose not to use wine, simply add an extra cup of vegetable broth to the recipe.

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 300 F.
  2. In a large stove- and oven-safe pot, saute the onions and garlic.
  3. When the onions start to look translucent, toss in the eggplant and the peppers allow it to brown a little; add the paprika and toss through; add the potatoes, tomatoes, marjoram, wine and broth, bring to a simmer.
  4. Transfer to the oven to braise uncovered for about 45 minutes.
  5. Add salt an pepper to taste; garnish with chopped marjoram.

The Power of Orange


While all fruits and vegetables are healthy, deep orange fruits and vegetables are most beneficial, cutting one’s risk of heart disease by 26 percent. During a recent study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, researches analyzed the diets of 20,069 healthy people for 10 years and came to the conclusion that if you’re going to pick one fruit or vegetable, an orange one may have the most health power.

So what does that mean for you? Stock up on these food items which fall in the orange group: carrots, yams, cantaloupe and butternut squash.
