Easy Eggplant and Tomato Sauce

  • RECIPE MAKES: Serves 4
  • PREP TIME: 10 minute
  • COOK TIME: 30 minute
Step 1

Heat oil over medium heat in a deep saucepan. Add garlic, onion, fry 5 mins; until onion softens.

Step 2

Add eggplant, salt, and herbs and stir. Cover, cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally; 15 mins or until eggplant is soft.

Step 3

Add tomatoes, including juice; simmer further 10 mins (break tomatoes into smaller pieces with a spoon as sauce simmers, if desired).


Step 4

Serve hot over low protein pasta with fresh basil, or parsley.

Top tip:

Try serving over low protein rice, or a small baked potato if your protein allowance permits.  

For a spicy version, replace dried basil and oregano with 1 tsp cumin and 1 tsp chilli powder.  

Sauce stays fresh in an airtight container, in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
