Eggplant is quickly becoming one of my favorite foods. We picked up two nice looking ones at a farm stand in Leesburg, and also got a big one in our CSA. I was interested in making a WW recipe for caponata pizza, and figured it made much more sense to make my own than to use the store bought kind, as the recipe called for. I used this Serious Eats recipe for inspiration. Pizza recipe to follow.
About 2 tbsp olive oil
1 large eggplant, cubed
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup tomatoes (I used fresh), chopped
2 tsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp capers
salt and pepper
1/3 cup parsley, chopped
Add most of your oil to pan. Brown eggplant thoroughly on all sides. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon.
Add remaining oil. Cook onion and garlic for a couple minutes. Add tomato and cook another two minutes or so. Add remaining ingredients (save parsley) and cook another minute.
Remove from heat. Stir in parsley. Season to desired taste.
