Eggplant Coponata


This dish is great Vegan treat. Typically I would serve it with Antipasto and have some crostini to spread it on. Enjoy it your way. I do not use pine nuts because my youngest daughter has peanut and tree nut allergies. Our home is nut free.

eggplant 2 large and diced (look at picture above for size)

onion 1 diced

celery 4 sticks chopped

olives black sliced 1/2 cup

Spanish olives whole 1/2 cup

diced tomatoes canned 27 oz.

capers 2 tablespoons (rinse)

salt and pepper taste

red vinegar 1/4 cup

olive oil 4 tablespoons

garlic chopped 1 tablespoon

sugar 2 tablespoons

fresh basil chopped 2 tablespoons

fresh parsley chopped 2 tablespoons

granulated garlic 1/2 teaspoon

onion powder 1 teaspoon

Butter 2 tablespoons

In a sauce pan or large sauté pan add olive oil over medium heat. When hot add eggplant, celery, onion, garlic, granulated garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Brown off all vegetables.
