  • 1
    Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
    2 medium Eggplant (1" chunks)
    Salt
    Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high with a few tablespoons of Olive Oil. Add the Eggplant in batches, to avoid overcrowding the pan, and season with Salt. Sauté until slightly softened and pale golden, about 5-6 minutes. Transfer each cooked batch to the slow-cooker.
  • 2
    Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
    1 Yellow Onion (chopped)
    Salt
    3 Garlic Cloves (smashed)
    Once Eggplant is cooked, add a few more tablespoons of Olive Oil to the pan and sauté the Onion for 3-4 minutes, until caramelized, seasoning with Salt. Add the Garlic and cook until fragrant.
  • 3
    3 tablespoons Tomato Paste
    1-2 teaspoons Chili Flakes
    Stir in the Tomato Paste and Chili Flakes and cook until rust colored, about 3 minutes. Transfer the mixture to the slow-cooker along with the cooking oil in the pan.
