In this eggplant version of chicken paprikash, Hungarian paprika gives the sauce its vibrant color and rich flavor while tofu sour cream adds creaminess. Even eggplant-haters love this delicious plant-based recipe!
In a blender or small food processor, blend all the ingredients for the tofu sour cream until completely smooth, and set aside in the refrigerator until needed.
In a large, non-stick saucepan, saute the onion in a small amount of water until it begins to brown, about 5-8 minutes. Add the garlic, paprika, and red pepper (optional), and stir for one minute. Add the salt, eggplant, peppers, vegetable broth, and tomatoes. Cover and simmer until the eggplant is tender and beginning to fall apart, about 15-20 minutes.
When the eggplant is done, check the seasonings and add more salt if necessary. Stir in the sour cream, and cook for another minute, until warmed through. Serve over pasta or rice. Serves 4-6.
