I made this last night. Photos at the end of the post.

Eggplant Fettuccini

1 whole eggplant, diced
4 tbs cooking sherry
6 cloves garlic, crushed & minced
1 med white onion, chopped
3 cups fresh tomatoes, finely chopped
2 fresh green peppers, chopped
1 tsp. oregano
½ cup unsweetened apple juice
2 six oz cans tomato paste (recommended brand = Muir)
1 tsp basil
2 tsp tamari

1 package of vegan Fettucini noodles

Sprinkle the eggplant with sea salt and let it sit for about half and hour.

Boil the Fettucini with a dash of salt till it's ready, then take it out and strain it.

Saute the garlic and onions in cooking sherry for about ten minutes. Add all the rest of the ingredients, except the Fettucini noodles, and let them simmer for about an hour. Serve over the noodles.

Notes: Still good after freezing. You might be tempted to leave out the apple juice. Dont. If you do, it will lose pizzazz. I use six cloves of garlic because I like things really garlicky. The recipe will taste okay with only three cloves.

That sounds really good!
I started my veg life with so much eggplant, and slowly got away from it-don't know why.
I like the apple juice suggestion, and definitly agree with Muir Glen organic canned tomatoes! Just stocked up on sales!

BTW, welcome!
