I went through many iterations of this recipe to get it right – much to the delight of my other half who has loved each attempt! Steaming the eggplant and zucchini has allowed me to increase the number of serves and stops the vegetables from getting mushed up in the Thermomix bowl. This stew can be served with quinoa, couscous or rissoni.

Tips and Hints

1. Since the eggplant and zucchini have been steamed, they’ll collect a lot of water that will then get released into the stew when you combine them together. Just stir together and the water will be incorporated into the sauce of the stew
