  • 1 medium red onions, sliced
  • 1- 2 medium zucchini squash, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1/2 inch squares
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 cup dry white wine

Steam eggplant for 10 minutes until soft but not mushy.  Heat olive oil in a sauté pan.  Add onions and cook until softened.  Add zucchini and bell peppers and cook for 5 minutes.  Add the steamed eggplant, cook for another 5 minutes and then add the garlic.

Add wine and stock.  Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium- high and stir in tomatoes, parsley, thyme, marjoram and bay leaf.  Reduce heat, cover and simmer gently for 10- 15 minutes.

Add beans and continue to cook uncovered until the vegetables are tender but not mushy and the liquid has thickened (about 5 minutes).

Remove from heat and stir in basil.
