Turkish Eggplant Salad

1 large red onion
3 cloves garlic, smashed
1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1” cubes
1 large eggplant, cut into 1” cubes
5 tbsp EVOO
1 medium jalapeño pepper, finely chopped (leave the seeds to make it spicy)
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp sugar
1 14 oz can of crushed tomatoes
Salt and pepper

In a large Dutch oven pot over medium-high heat, sauté red onion in EVOO until translucent. Add garlic, red bell pepper and eggplant and sauté for about 5 minutes. Add jalapeño pepper, paprika, cumin, sugar, salt, pepper and crushed tomatoes. Stir until evenly combined.
Reduce heat to low. Cover the pot and simmer for about 45 minutes, stirring every few minutes. Once the eggplant has thickened and has began to break down, it is ready.
Before serving garnish with cilantro leaves and a little EVOO.
You can serve this salad warm or cold.
