Cabbage cooked with eggplant

I bought some eggplant a while ago and it was starting to wrinkle in my fridge. I still didn’t have a plan for them so I used two of the most wrinkled in this cabbage which I made to go with ugali. I’ve never seen this done anywhere else. It sounded good in my head and didn’t turn out too badly either.

two sliced onions and 3 grated garlic cloves

I normally don’t put garlic in cabbage, it doesn’t need it. But my instincts said fry the eggplant in garlic! So I did.

I had mine with avocado on the side

I liked it a lot. Especially with the avocado. A little bit of the bitterness in the eggplant  came through but it wasn’t bad. My husband is on a meat kick! Every time I’ve made a meal without meat for the last 3 weeks he has protested. I keep telling him it’s not a good idea to eat meat everyday. Sometimes I make the cabbage with meat or just plain. The meat ones always taste better of course (^_^) How do you like your cabbage?

  1. you should maybe try and cook the soya meat for him. its healthy and kinda tastes meaty 🙂 am not a a fan of the eggplant but will try make it who knows..

  2. you can salt the eggplant before cooking it to reduce the bitterness- only remember to rinse before you cook it so that you don’t have too much salt in the food 🙂
