Eggplant Caponata Crostini image

Here is an easy, fast recipe for an appetizer redolent with the deep flavors of summer. Wait until the caponata is finished before toasting the bread. (The New York Times)

Provided by Elaine Louie

Time 45m

Yield 4 appetizer servings

Number Of Ingredients 12

5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 Spanish onion, finely chopped
2-3 cloves garlic
1 eggplant, about 3/4 pound, cut into 3/4 inch dice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 tomatoes, cut into 3/4 inch dice
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/3 cup chopped capers
1/4 baguette, sliced diagonally into eight 1/2-inch-thick rounds, or other slices of crusty bread
Aged balsamic vinegar, for sprinkling
1-2 leaves basil, sliced into a chiffonade
Fleur de sel, Maldon salt, or other flaky sea salt

Steps:

  • Place a large skillet or sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and the onion, and sauté until softened, 5 to 6 minutes. Add garlic and continue to sauté until soft and golden, about 10 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
  • Wash skillet and return to medium-high heat. Add 3 tablespoons of the olive oil and allow to heat until shimmering. Working in batches if necessary, add a single layer of eggplant, and toss to coat in oil. Fry, stirring frequently, until tender and evenly browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Wash skillet and return to medium heat. Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and tomatoes. Sauté until tomatoes are tender but have not lost their shape, and almost all the liquid has evaporated.
  • In a large bowl, combine eggplant, onion mixture, tomatoes, raisins and capers. Toss gently to mix well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • To serve, toast the sliced bread, and top with a large spoonful of the caponata mixture. Sprinkle with a few drops of vinegar, and garnish with the basil chiffonade, and a few grains of flaky sea salt.

From acouplecooks.com
Estimated Reading Time 6 mins
  • Cut the eggplant into 1-inch chunks, or you can cut it into long planks or round slices. In a large bowl, quickly mix with olive oil and kosher salt and fresh ground pepper (the eggplant soaks up the oil in an instant, so mix as soon as you add it!). Pour the eggplant onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread it into an even layer.
  • Roast for 30 to 35 minutes, until browned and very tender, gently stirring the sheet at about the 25 minute mark. (If you’re roasting eggplant planks, flip the planks at 20 minutes and cook 35 to 40 minutes total, until browned and tender.)
  • Remove from the oven and gently toss with the garlic and herbs, making sure to spread out any chunks of garlic that stick together. The eggplant will be very tender so handle it gently. Serve as a side dish, or as Roasted Eggplant Pasta or in an Eggplant Sandwich.

From toriavey.com
  • Roast the eggplant till very soft, scoop out the flesh with the smoky juices and discard the skin. Learn how to roast an eggplant. Place the roasted eggplant flesh in a mesh strainer in the sink and let it drain off excess liquid and return to room temperature.
  • Roughly chop 1/2 tbsp of the basil leaves, reserve the rest. Combine roasted eggplant, tahini paste, fresh lemon juice, olive oil, crushed garlic, salt and the 1/2 tbsp chopped fresh basil in a bowl. Use a fork to mash the mixture together till smooth, creamy and dip-like. Break apart any stringy pieces of eggplant with the fork. Taste the eggplant; add more salt or lemon juice to taste.
  • At this point, the mixture may be served as a dip in a bowl garnished with some fresh chiffonade-cut basil (see directions below), or you can make crostini with it. If serving as a dip, I recommend doubling the recipe to make a larger amount. If making as crostini, read on!
  • To make crostini, preheat grill to high or oven to 400 degrees F. Slice the baguette along a diagonal into 1/4 inch slices using a serrated knife. Do not slice them thicker than 1/4 inch, or they will be difficult to bite through when toasted/grilled.
