A ragout is a fancy term that basically means stew. This hearty and healthy side dish accompanies steaks and pork chops nicely. If your not a huge fan of eggplant try substituting mushrooms. It’s a worthy alternative and soaks in the flavors of the ragout nicely.
2 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic (minced)
1 stalk leeks (washed thoroughly and chopped)
4 Roma tomatoes (chopped)
1 medium eggplant (peeled & diced)
2 bunches of kale (washed and roughly chopped)
1 tbsp lemon juice
Sat and pepper to taste
Heat olive oil over medium high heat in large frying pan. Add leeks and cook through for 3 minutes. Add the chopped garlic to pan followed by the tomatoes and eggplant.
Cool through for 6-8 minutes until the tomatoes start to break down almost forming a sauce. Stir in the kale in two different batches not to overcrowd the pan and simmer on medium for 4 minutes until kale begins to slightly wilt. Finish off with the lemon juice, salt and pepper.FullSizeRender (9)
