Of lately the weather is very temperamental, one day it is very cold with threats of freezing temperatures and the next we are in the 80’s. Today while we are enjoying relatively warm and sunny weather here in Florida, in the Northeast USA they are under a heavy snowstorm.

This Vegan Eggplant Stew is dedicated to all my readers experiencing the cold weather. I decided to make a  Caribbean Eggplant Stew that is hearty comforting, warming and a flavor bomb!

  • Green Onions: Provide a mild, crisp texture and a burst of freshness.
  • Cumin: Lends a warm, earthy spice that complements the eggplant beautifully.
