I have a whole bunch of super ripe tomatoes, 2 fresh jalapeƱo peppers, 2 small eggplants , a head of garlic and 2 yellow peppers. Can I make a matbucha, Spanish eggplant, type of dip out of this??? Any recipes? I want to do it for Shabbos. Thanks

Matbucha (from the Yated or Hamodia ages ago)

8 large beefsteak tomatoes - I use a large (20 something ounces) can whole, peeled, in puree. The canned diced doesn't work as well for this recipe
1 jalapeno pepper (if you want less heat remove the seeds and white veins)
2 bell peppers (I use red)
5 whole cloves of garlic (or more), peeled
salt to taste (less if using canned tomatoes
~ 1/4 - 1/2 tsp cumin
5 Tbs extra virgin olive oil

Chunk the tomatoes and peppers and add to a med , heavy bottomed pot along with the canned tomato puree. Add the garlic, salt and cumin and stir. Sprinkle with the oil.

Bring to a boil over a medium flame, reduce to very low - it should be a slow simmer. Cook 2-4+ hours, stirring frequently, until the veggies are falling apart (garlic and peppers should be very soft) and all the liquid has cooked out - should be frying in the oil by the time it's done. Mash or blend to desired consistency (I mashed with the back of my spoon.
Let cool then refrigerate.

I've never used eggplant with this but it sounds like it would be a nice addition. Hatzlachah!
