I made this for a party I attended yesterday. I used balsamic vinegar too, didn't peel the eggplants, but DID salt and drain them in a colander an hour before using them. The recipe came out PERFECT, not marinara-ish AT ALL! I served it with toasted pita chips and it was more popular than the regular salsa/chips on the table. EVERYONE raved about it! I will definitely make this again, not only for home enjoyment but for my company's potluck lunches. Easy, elegant, and very yummy. Splurge for pita chips or toast some French or Italian bread and skip the saltines or Ritz crackers.
Almost there, no bell peppers, no mushrooms and no green stuffed olives. Instead use; sicilian green olives (pitted) and capers.....that is the authentic version of caponata!
When I made this I didn't chop up the eggplant small enough to really fit on a cracker or pita chip with much else.... i guess i wasn't really thinking as i was chopping. But, after it cooked, to remedy the situation, i put the whole thing in a food processor. Man is it good! It came out as more of a dip, but it's a delicious dip, and so healthy.
This is one of the best appetizer I have ever had! Since I did'nt have any tomato paste I just used Italian garlic tomato paste it is just as good. Thank you so much!
Awesome. I served it on shredded cabbage with a dash of red wine vinegar, a few fresh green olives and plum tomatoes sliced, and topped with shredded parmesan. Like an exotic "downtown" summer salad. Really fresh and tasty on a sweltering day. You must try it.
This was very good, but I doubt there was enough for 48 servings there. Once it was done, I made some italian toasts and spread the antipasto over them, sprinkled some parmesian on top and put it back in the oven for about 5 minutes. It was a big hit at my party.
This is great!! I used to have a roommate whose mom made something like this and I loved it. The recipe sounded akin to what she made but I had no idea what it was called. Anyway, instead of using red wine vinegar I used balsamic vinegar, just a personal preference of mine, but I think it really helped to develop the flavor, and I used a 1/4 cup of it. The only other alterations were more garlic, not peeling the eggplant, and I didn't have oregano and basil at hand but I had italian seasonings, so I used a 1/2 tsp of that, instead. Oh, and I didn't bother to add the sugar since balsamic vinegar already has some sweetness to it.
Fantastic. I don't bother peeling the eggplant, and I personally don't like mushrooms or olives. I substitute zucchini for the mushrooms, and 1-2 tbl of capers for the olives. Instead of the vinegar sugar combo I followed others suggestion and just use balsamic vinegar to taste-1/4 cup probably. If possible I add fresh herbs instead of dried, and cook it longer than 30 minutes, 45 more likely. Great with fresh soft/crusty bread or over pasta.
