In this recipe, roasting the vegetables beforehand brings out their flavor. This is an “Earthy” dish that is good for stability in the face of new endeavors and for protection. Serve it alongside Greek olvies, feta cheese, and pita wedges for a Mediterranean flair.

  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and chopped into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 red onion, peeled and chopped into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tbsps olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste

Preheat the oven to 400F. Place the eggplant, peppers, and onions in a large bowl and toss them with garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper.Spread mixture onto a cookie sheet. Roast for 45 minutes or until vegetables are lightly brown and soft. Stir occasionally so they roast evenly.

Place the mixture in a food processor or blender. Add tomato paste and process into a chunky blend.
