1 Pour oil into medium non-stick skillet. Add next 6 ingredients, and toss to combine. Mix in eggplant. Cover, and cook over medium heat 4 minutes to blend flavors, stirring occasionally. Mix in crushed tomatoes, garlic, and 3⁄4 cup water. Bring to simmer. Cover, and cook 10 minutes, or until eggplant is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in ¼ cup cilantro; if sauce is too thick, add 1 to 2 Tbsp. water to thin it slightly. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
