Vegan Eggplant Dijon Broccoli Recipe: Healthy and quick

I love eggplant and dijon mustard so why not put them together? The flavors of this dish are Indian, “Middle Eastern”, and French. I love combining these different flavors together to make a comforting dish that features the textures and flavors of essential vegetables. This is also a great weeknight recipe as it cooks quite fast! Enjoy!

Prep time


Cooking time




  • 1 eggplant (chopped)

  • 1 head broccoli (chopped)

  • 1 cup cannellini beans (dried or canned)

  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)

  • 2 tbsp grapeseed oil

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard

  • 2 tbsp tamari/soy sauce

  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar

  • 1 tbsp soy butter

  • Spices
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika

  • 2 tsp Hungarian paprika

  • 2 tsp cumin

  • 2 tsp turmeric

  • 2 tsp rosemary

  • salt/pepper to taste

  • Garnish
  • 2 tsp green onion

  • 1 bunch dill (chopped)

  • 10 green olives (chopped in half)


  • Chop the eggplant so each slice is about 1/4 inch thick. Think small-medium sized circles.
  • Sprinkle salt on both sides of the eggplant and drain in a colander for 30 minutes. When it’s done draining, you can rinse the salt off the eggplant and pat it dry on paper towels.
  • In a large frying pan, heat up the grapeseed oil. Test it out with one piece of eggplant and once it sizzles, it’s ready to cook!
  • Sauté the eggplant on each side for about 4 minutes each until charred. Add more grapeseed oil throughout. Take the eggplant out of the pan when it’s ready.
  • In the same pan, start sautéing your broccoli for about 3 minutes until charred on medium heat and add half of the olive oil. Add more olive oil throughout. Then add some garlic and lower the heat.
  • Add all of your spices! Then add tamari, Dijon mustard, white wine vinegar and sauté on low-medium heat. You might want to add more Dijon to your liking. Add 1 tbsp of soy butter and stir.
  • Add the beans, eggplant, dill, and olives. Season to taste. Add in the rest of the olive oil.
  • Garnish with green onions. Serve with rice pilaf, couscous or basmati rice!


  • If you are super busy, you can just chop and sauté the eggplant. You don’t have to let the eggplant sweat.
  • You can also add soy butter instead of olive oil if you are running low on olive oil.
  • Throw in some spinach or peppers for some added veggies!
  • Throw in some garam masala to change up the flavors a bit.
