Eggplant, garlic, mushrooms, peas, and onions are the primary ingredients of this easy side dish. Combine them with olive oil and herbs for a wonderful saute and serve with any type of meat or just like that with a fried egg on the top.

Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat, and saute the eggplants with onions and mushrooms for about 10 minutes, stirring often until vegetables are browned and soft.
Add peas and simmer for 5- 10 more minutes. Add the garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper to the pan and stir. Let it simmer with the eggplants for about a minute or two.

So happy that I found my way back to your blog. I bookmarked it a couple weeks ago because I wanted to try this recipe out then suddenly couldn't find it in my bookmarks tab!
This dish has changed my life…if I were asked what I'd like to have for my last supper on earth, this would be it. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
Note: I had it with medium-boiled eggs instead of fried! Just as scrumptious!
