Chock-full of vegetables and fruit, this versatile Sicilian eggplant dish is hearty and healthy. We like to serve our Caponata recipe as a dip with crusty bread or as a relish with fish or meat.

What You'll Need

  • 1 large eggplant, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large Rome apple, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 (12-ounce) jar roasted red bell peppers, drained and coarsely choppedely chopped
  • 1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon capers
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

What to Do

  1. Place eggplant in a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, and toss with salt. Microwave at HIGH 8 minutes; gently toss with olive oil.
  2. Stir together eggplant and remaining ingredients, except vinegar, in a 3-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on HIGH setting 3 hours or on LOW setting 6 hours, or until apples are tender. Stir in vinegar. Cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving.

Made this last night and absolutely loved it! I left out the capers, since I'm not a fan, but that didn't change how great this caponata tasted. It was really easy to make too. Just chop everything up and throw it into the slow cooker. Plus, my house smelled really good!
