Eggplant with a crisp egg coating, bathed in a simple tomato sauce and baked with lashings of mozzarella and ricotta. Serve on its own or with pasta for something more substantial. This is comfort food, friends!
Two recipes in one: a warm, chunky caponata-style salad of eggplant, zucchini, tomato, red onion, olives and fresh herbs; and a chilli bean dish with caponata-style vegies. Take one or both and you’ve got a peasant’s feast in no time at all. Serve the salad as a side or the beans as a main. Warming autumnal fare.
