2 thick slices of eggplant, shredded (it's ok if it's mushy)
1/4 cup onion, diced
1/4 cup green pepper, diced
1 to 2 oz tomato sauce
chili powder to taste
ground cumin to taste
salt if desired
diced jalapeno or red pepper if desired
Combine all ingredients in a small frying pan and cook on medium heat until most of the liquid is evaporated.
The result should be something like Spanish rice. I created this recipe because I didn't want to serve a starchy side with a starchy main dish. Enjoy!
