Eggplant

I am new at cooking eggplant for myself and after doing some research, I have put together a recipe that I am going make.

1 eggplant
1 tbsp capers
1/4 cup olives
1 can tomatoes
1 roasted red pepper
1 chopped onion
2 - 3 minced cloves garlic
garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
seasoning salt
pepper
red pepper flakes
olive or coconut oil (optional)
mushrooms (optional)


1. salt sliced eggplant
2. let sit for a hour
3. rinse off
4. cut into cubes
(you can fry in a little oil of your choice for about 7 - 10 minutes per side until light brown, skip step 7 and in step 9 add tomatoes with everything else and increase cooking time in that step accordingly.)
5. remove from pan
6. cook onions and garlic until translucent
7. add eggplant and layer with tomatoes.
8. cook about 10 minutes
9. add remainder of ingredients, season to taste cook well approximately 10 more minutes.
10. serve over couscous or pasta
