en la cocina: eggplant surprise

so, if you've been reading, you know that the Maples have been doing a little detox.
nothing fancy, it just consists of cutting out any and all foods that deposit toxins in our bodies.
well, we've been inventing some healthy recipes that taste so delish you don't even have an inkling that they are ridding your body of filth :)

below you will find one of our very favorites so far.
it's so super yummy. if you like eggplant, this will not disappoint.

one medium eggplant, diced

two roma tomatoes, diced
red or green or yellow pepper (i used yellow), diced
one small, yellow onion, diced
1 can of low-sodium diced tomatoes
1 cup uncooked brown rice
1 package extra firm tofu, squeezed to drain, halved.

cook rice according to directions on package.

saute the onion (in a large skillet) in olive oil. 
add garlic.
immediately add eggplant, pepper, half of the tofu package and roma tomatoes.
cover and allow to cook in plenty of olive oil til eggplant softens.
add can of diced tomatoes, drained.
let simmer for 5-10 min.

serve on top of a yummy bed of rice.
