Avocados add a wonderful and unexpected creaminess to this vegan Indian Eggplant curry. Even meat eaters will appreciate its heartiness.

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 medium-size onion, diced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika (preferably hot)
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 5 tablespoons currants
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 pounds eggplant (about 2 medium-size eggplants)

Instructions:

In a medium-size skillet over medium-high heat, warm 2 tablespoons olive oil; add onion, avocado, and spices, and sauté 10 minutes. Then add tomatoes, tomato paste, currants, and lemon juice. Simmer 10 minutes; then turn off heat.
