Recipe

One of our CSA members created her own version of a Moroccan Stew using the eggplant, basil, and yellow onion from her share.  (You can follow her public Facebook page here)

– saute 1 yellow onion in a few tbsps of ghee
+ diced eggplant and chopped cauliflower and saute a few mins
+ 1 can stewed tomatoes and a cup chicken broth (homemade is yummiest)
+ 2 tbsps paprika, 1.5 tsp sea salt, 2 tsps turmeric, 2 tsps coriander, 2 tsps fennel seed, dash of black pepper and simmer for a bit
+ 1 lb ground pastured pork. I browned separately so I did not smoosh my veggies, simmer a few more mins
– just before done + several cloves minced garlic, several handfuls chopped basil, and the juice of half a lemon and cook 1 or 2 mins.
Stir. Serve. Enjoy.
