In a large dutch oven, saute chopped onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic in oil until wilted. Peel and chop eggplant and add this plus the sausage (chopped in small pieces) to the wilted vegetables. When eggplant is well-smothered, add salt and pepper to taste. (This should be a peppery dish, so don't spare the seasoning.) Add the rice and water next. Cover and cook until rice is tender (about 25-30 minutes) over low heat.
