Directions for: Rustic Italian Caponata


cup (50 mL) extra-virgin olive oil

1 medium eggplant, cut into 1/2-inch pieces


1 medium onion, diced

2 large ribs celery, thinly sliced crosswise

3 cloves garlic, minced

tsp (2 mL) crushed red pepper flakes (more or less to taste)

1 can (14 oz/ 398 mL) diced tomatoes, drained, liquid reserved

2 tsp (10 mL) rice wine vinegar

1 Tbsp (15 mL) white sugar

2 - 3 Tbsp (30-45 mL) pine nuts, toasted


1. Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil.

2. When oil starts shimmering, add eggplant and pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until eggplant is softened and browned. Remove from heat; scrape eggplant into bowl. Set aside.

3. Return skillet to heat. Add onion, celery and another pinch of salt. Saut until onions are slightly softened and somewhat translucent.

4. Add garlic and red pepper flakes. Stir and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

5. Stir in tomatoes, vinegar and sugar.

6. Return eggplant to skillet. Reduce heat and simmer on low, stirring occasionally, 15 to 20 minutes, adding reserved tomato liquid if needed to keep mixture from drying out.
