Caponata




Ingredients:

1 medium size eggplant, seeded and cut into 1 inch pieces
2 plum tomatoes, quartered
1 yellow pepper. seeded and sliced
1 medium zucchini, sliced
4 ounces of black olives
15 fresh basil leaves
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a saucepan and cook for about 30 minutes on medium/low heat, stirring occasionally.

Once it has cooked down, take off heat and spoon on toasted bread and top with whatever veg cheese you'd like. Eat. And then eat some more. :)


(Variations: Can serve over pasta, or if you'd like it more as a stew, add some vegetable broth and veggie sausage)
