Love your photos!!! It's great that you took different recipes and made them your own.


Your stew looks delicious. I love eggplant dishes and with lentils--even better. Thanks for also sharing your stew with Souper Sundays this week! ;-)

Way to go for creating your own recipe for this dish! I love reading several other versions then melding the best of them into a new concoction. Although eggplant isn't my favorite vegetable, I really love split peas, and the East Coast is having the perfect weather for stew.

Thank you, Debra :)

Thank you, Deb :)

The recent storms ushered winter big time, didn't they? I agree, cold outside makes stew welcome, Cathy :)


I do like this dish but what really caught my eye was your radicchio Instagram post. What beautiful vegetables! I adore Treviso but it's rare to find it in these parts. And I've never even seen the white variety before. Gorgeous!

Simona Carini

All varieties of radicchio are beautiful, but indeed, radicchio di Castelfranco is stunning, Frank. There are a couple of farms that grow it here that I am aware of. The ones in the photo are from La Tercera farm in Marin County, north of San Francisco. She also grew the beautiful Lunga di Napoli squash I showed in a recent Instagram post and also the special Coco beans in an earlier post and the Sicilian tenerumi. Shopping at her stall is a true delight :)

Eggplant is one of my very favorites. I am anxious to try this stew recipe.

Simona Carini

Mine too, Wendy. It is great in rich recipes but it also makes a great side dish simply cooked in olive oil :)
