Eggplant Sauce & Finding New Inspiration

Hello everybody,
Sorry 'cause I didn't post in a while..I know totally not like me. Had some fun days, and some lazy days...can't you tell that I wasn't posting since Tuesday?! 
I have been blogging for bit over year and a half, and not very often I have this blockage of what to write or what to share with you. I have so many projects that I am working on that I think my body or more like my brain need a break. With 307 posts, and almost all of them are recipes...I have hard time finding new inspiration, something new, you know! So I took a stroll through the woods, went barefoot in the river,



goofed around with my kids & hubby, watched Tv like addict staying in my PJ all day long (well that was fun for a day or two),



played with photo editing, tried different recipe combinations, and visited my fellow bloggers for the inspiration....




Eggplant Sauce with chicken, potatoes and salad

On the end...well, I ended up with roasted chicken and mashed potatoes...oh wait! There is actually new sauce that I made with eggplant..will just have to share that with you. 


Eggplant Sauce
Prep time 5 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Ingredients:
  • 1 Tbs. Olive oil
  • 1/2 sweet onion, minced
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Large Eggplant
  • 1/2 cup Chicken broth
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipped cream
  • 1/4 tsp. Vegan butter
  • 1 tsp. flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pinch of Crushed red Pepper
Directions:
  1. Saute onion and garlic in a olive oil.
  2. Peel the eggplant and chop it in the chunks
  3. Drop on a hot oil together with onion and garlic;  Stir!
  4. Pour Chicken broth + bay leaves in and turn down the temperature; cover with a lid!
  5. Let it cook for 5-7 minutes or until liquid evaporate.
  6. Pour Whipped Cream in, stir and let it cook uncovered for 5 minutes.
  7. Season with salt, pepper and crushed red pepper; add vegan butter.
  8. Mix 1 teaspoon of flour with 5 teaspoons of water and mix until smooth.
  9. Slowly pour it in the sauce, you don't have to use it all, just enough to get the sauce thicker. 
  10. Stir, cover and set aside until ready to be served. 
This sauce is so sooo good that you will want to just dip your bread in..something that I am trying to stay away from..
Anyhow, you all know how to make roasted chicken and mashed potatoes, right? However if you don't let me know and I will hook you up with that!!!
