  • Add another 1 tablespoon oil to the pot. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring frequently, until softened, 6 to 7 minutes. Use the slotted spoon to transfer the mushrooms to the bowl with the eggplant.

  • Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pot. Add bell peppers and onion; cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until mostly softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic, thyme and paprika; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add water, crushed tomatoes, potato, tamari (or soy sauce) and salt. Stir in the cooked eggplant and mushrooms; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low to maintain a low simmer. Cover and cook until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 15 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high and add green beans; cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vinegar to taste, 1 tablespoon at a time. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
