Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Place a skillet on high heat and add 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add the onion and when softened add the eggplant and green pepper and cook for 5 minutes. Add some water if the vegetables start to dry up.  Add the smoked paprika, soy sauce and balsamic vinegar and cook for 2 more minutes until all liquids have evaporated. Let the mixture cool.
