Catalan Aubergines/Eggplants

Similar to ratatouille, but different. :-) The paprika makes it different; using smoked paprika makes it extra-special!


  • 2 medium eggplants or aubergines
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • chopped fresh parsley

Prepare the eggplants/aubergines by peeling them and cutting into cubes (about 1-inch).

Heat the oil in a frying pan add the cubes and sauté for a few minutes

Add the chopped onion, crushed garlic and paprika to the eggplant/aubergine in the frying pan and fry over a low heat for a further 5 mins

Add the chopped tomatoes; season with salt and pepper

Cover the frying pan and cook for a further 15 minutes (checking that the eggplant/aubergine is well cooked and tender).

Place in a serving dish and garnish with a chopped fresh parsley.
