Eggplant caponata – traditional Sicilian recipe

Yesterday during our weekly visit at Ca’ – Cucina in Hellerup (Denmark) we saw a lot of fruit and vegetables, including eggplants and celery ….the right ingredients to make caponata, a traditional Sicilian recipe. Every area in Sicily has its own version. We prepared the one we got from a dear friend from Palermo.

Eggplant rolls (involtini di melanzane)

Even this week  at Ca’ Cucina  you can find a lot of fresh vegetables delivered directly from Italy: red and yellow peppers, San Marzano and cherry tomatoes, striated violet eggplants and much more… including juicy fruit.

We decided to prepared a recipe with striated eggplants, as they have a sweeter and less spongy flesh and a thinner skin than the conventional purple ones.

You can decide not to cook this week and to take advantage of Ca’ Tavola Calda  or Take Away to taste these fresh vegetables ready to be served to your family or ready to be eaten at the restaurant.
