Instructions:

In a large bowl add chopped eggplant and sprinkle with half a teaspoon of salt, stir to combine, let sit 20 minutes.

In a large pot (dutch oven) add olive oil, garlic and onion, when onion becomes clear add peppers, stir and cook on medium for approximately 10 minutes.

Add chopped tomatoes and half the spices, add eggplant and zucchini, top with other half of spices. Stir often and cook on low for approximately 45-60 minutes, or until vegetables are cooked to desired doneness. (I found 50 minutes was good for me).
