Eggplant Antipasto – eterntainment

Antipasti are usually made in the oven and take hours to prepare, which is why I love this recipe, which is very practical as it is made in a regular pan, but this eggplant antipasto (or caponata) is wonderful!

I made it for Christmas at my parents’ house and I think everyone liked it so I decided to write it down so I wouldn’t forget it. The good thing about it is that it lasts for 1 month in the fridge but it has to be kept in a well-sealed and clean container.

So let’s copy the recipe?


3 medium eggplants, chopped with skin;
1 red pepper (but it has to be small) chopped;
1 yellow pepper (small), chopped;
1/3 cup (tea) chopped olives;
1 chopped onion;
3 chopped garlic cloves;
1/2 cup (tea) of white raisins;
1 tablespoon of oregano;
1 teaspoon of salt;
Basil and thyme leaves, black pepper to taste;
3 tablespoons of white vinegar;
1/2 cup (tea) of olive oil.

Way of doing:

Leave the chopped eggplants to soak in water until ready to use to prevent them from darkening.
Saute the onion and garlic in a drizzle of olive oil and add the peppers, but pay attention, stir until soft over low heat.

Drain the eggplants then add to the stew, mix and stir well until they are soft. If necessary, add water (but at most half a cup of coffee) little by little to help it cook. When the water dries, add the same amount again, and continue doing this until the eggplant is cooked.

Add the olives, raisins, oregano, salt, herbs, vinegar (I used alcohol) and olive oil. Just be careful, leave it on the heat until it reaches the point you want (dryer or wetter). I stir a little (about 1 minute) and take it off the heat. Attention if not bitter

Tip to avoid mistakes:

Taste to see if it needs more salt. If you like a savory appetizer, finish the recipe here, but if you like it sweeter, which is my case, add 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. I love adding this sugar, but people don’t always like sweeter flavors, so see what works best for you.

If you want to make it in the microwave, here is a very good variation of the recipe, but there is a video for this eggplant appetizer recipe on our channel, just press play here:
