1 celery stalk, sliced

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add eggplant and cook until lightly browned, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. With slotted spoon, transfer to medium bowl.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil to skillet, along with onion, green and red peppers, celery, and garlic. Cook over medium heat until vegetables are softened, about 10 minutes.
