  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup whole wheat couscous

  • salt

Instructions

  1. Wash and dry the fresh produce.
    • 2 eggplants
    • 1 small pkg fresh basil
  2. Trim and discard the ends of the eggplants; medium dice the eggplants (cut into ½-inch cubes) and transfer to a medium bowl.
  3. Preheat a sauté pan over medium heat.
  4. Peel and small dice the onion (cut into ¼-inch cubes).
    • 1 medium yellow onion
  5. Add olive oil to the pan and swirl to coat the bottom.
    • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  6. Add the onion to the pan; cook, stirring frequently, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes.
  7. Peel and mince (or crush) the garlic.
    • 4 cloves garlic
  8. Add broth to a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
    • 16 fl oz (2 cups) chicken or vegetable broth
  9. Add the garlic to the pan; stir until fragrant, 15 to 30 seconds.
  10. Add the eggplant, diced tomatoes, and broth to the pan; season with cumin, salt, pepper, and curry powder. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggplant is tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
    • 2 (14.5 oz) cans diced tomatoes
    • 8 fl oz (1 cup) chicken or vegetable broth
    • 1 tsp cumin
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1 tsp black pepper

    • ½ tsp salt
    • 1 cup whole wheat couscous
  12. While the eggplant cooks, drain and rinse the chickpeas in a colander.
    • 2 (15 oz) cans garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
  13. Place the feta in a small bowl.
    • 1 (4 oz) pkg crumbled feta cheese
  14. Pick the basil leaves off the stems; discard the stems and chop almost all of the leaves (save a few for garnishing).
  15. Stir the chickpeas and chopped basil into the pan; cook for another 2 to 3 minutes.
  16. Uncover the couscous and fluff with a fork.
  17. To serve, spoon the couscous onto a plate, top with the stew, and garnish with the feta and remaining basil leaves. Enjoy!
