Eggplant, Onion, and Tomato Stew


  • 1 organic eggplant (medium, unpeeled, and diced)

So I made this in my instant pot with couscous. Threw it all in together and put on rice setting. Came out perfect!

What was the time for the rice setting? Could it be done on the manual setting!

This recipe took an hour to cook! I have no idea how you would think it took 20-25 minutes, and my stove top is hot. More like 50-55 minutes...

What is the garnish on top of the eggplant stew?

This look absolutely delicious! Thank you for the recipe. i\'ll have to try this myself sometime soon!

The point of the Paleo diet is, and I feel some people forget this, to not only diet, but to eat delicious foods at the same time. It\'s the only diet I\'ve come across that cuts out food groups, yet still focusses on everyone\'s need to eat great food.

I\'m a real foodie, and would not survive on any other diet, but Paleo has been very good for me. I\'ve written about one of my favourite cookbooks: http://cookbook-reviews.net/review-the-paleo-recipe-book/
