- ¼ cup (56 g) Loprofin Rice
- ½ Tbsp coconut oil
- 1 small (25 g) shallot, diced
- ½ manzano pepper, diced (see Notes)

- ½ tsp cardamom
- ¼ tsp allspice
- 1 large (180 g) beefsteak tomato, largely diced
- 1 ½ tsp honey
- Salt and pepper
- Cook rice according to box instructions, adding a pinch of cardamom to the water as the rice cooks for additional flavor.
- Meanwhile, in a large pan, melt coconut oil over medium-low heat. Add shallot and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes.
- Add eggplant, cardamom and allspice. Stir until combined. Add tomato. Lightly smash tomato with a fork to break the skin, being careful not to smash eggplant pieces. Add honey and stir.
- Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 3-5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Red bell pepper or jalapeno can be substituted for manzano pepper if unavailable. Manzano pepper is a sweet, but spicy pepper.
