Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the salami, and cook until evenly browned. Mix in onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Cook until tender. Mix in eggplant, tomato paste, and cilantro, and season with salt, pepper, and oregano. Continue cooking 15 minutes. Mash the eggplant as it softens, and add a little water if necessary to keep the ingredients from drying out.
