Eggs over Curried Eggplant and Asparagus (4 Hour body friendly)
You will need:
1 small yellow onion diced 1-3 cloves garlic minced (depending on level of garlic you like, I LOVE it!) 1 Eggplant diced Asparagus (15-20 spears or so) 2 cups mushrooms coarsely chopped 1 can white beans (rinsed and drained) small can tomato paste 3 cups water 2 free range organic eggs (certified humane if possible: I swear they taste so much better and they are worth it) coconut or any healthy oil (2TBSP)
Spices: Garam Masala or any curry spice blend you prefer (2Tbsp), Ginger (1tbsp), crushed red pepper (1 tsp) , hot chili sauce (I like sriracha) to taste
In a heavy skillet, heat oil over medium high heat Add onion and sauté until translucent Add the mushroom, garlic, and asparagus and sauté for 5 minutes Mix the tomato paste with 1 cup of water to start then add to vegetables Wait until the vegetables come back to a simmer and add the eggplant. Bring back up to a simmer then bring heat down to a low simmer. The sauce will start to thicken, so add water 1/2 cup at a time to bring to a preferred consistency. Add all the spices listed and the white beans and stir You should have a thick stew consistency at this point Continue simmering until all vegetables are tender (this is usually when I add more hot sauce to my taste preference) In the meantime, fry or scramble 2 eggs in any style you prefer in a separate pan Serve at least 1 cup of curried stew in a bowl, top with eggs, and give a healthy garnish of cilantro
You should have enough stew left to make 4-6 meals out of it, just top with 2 eggs or 30g any protein of your choice Enjoy!
It looks kind of funky but it has really good flavor and a bit of a kick.
Yummy treat if you love Indian food - slow carb - crunchy and so good with a lentil dhal
I made this recipe up after seeing some recipes for Indian Roti. I have been experimenting with Chickpea flour since starting the 4hourbody and this has worked well. This recipe is delicious and is a great fix for those carb cravings. They have a spicy kick to them and I cut them up to make nacho chips aswell.

"Double rainbow unicorn pony alert: you can eat CRACKERS/FLATBREAD on the FHB diet using bean flour. In this recipe, I use garbanzo/chickpea flour, also known as besan."

NOTE: The original recipe is served over rice, I suggest serving over cauliflower instead, perhaps mashed up so it is like "faux-ta-toes." (FYI: that is quinoa in the picture, which I know is not allowed.)
"If you are a fan of cauliflower, you can load up your lentils with some pre-cooked florets as shown here."
