Easy

Serves 4

3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 large eggplant (about 1 pound), trimmed and cut into small dice (about 3 cups)
1 medium onion, cut into small dice (about 1 1/2 cups)
2 cloves minced garlic (about 2 teaspoons)
2 medium zucchini (1 pound total), trimmed, cut into small dice (about 2 1/2 cups)
1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon herbs de Provence (or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme and 1/4 teaspoon each dried rosemary and dried marjoram)
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more for seasoning
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves, plus more for garnish

In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the eggplant and cook, stirring, until eggplant has softened but not completely lost its shape, about 5 minutes. Remove the eggplant from skillet. Heat another tablespoon of oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and zucchini to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini is soft, about 6 to 7 minutes. Return eggplant to pan and add tomatoes, herbs de Provence, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Simmer approximately 10 minutes. Season with additional salt, to taste. Stir in basil and remove from heat.
