I wouldn't really call this a caponata. Caponata traditionally has olives in it. This is more like a ratatouille. Eggplant des NOT need to be salted before hand. Just use fresh eggplant, peel and dice. Add onions, garlic, zucchini, and salt free caned diced tomatoes and viola! Submitted by:

About the bitterness of the eggplant like other viewers have stated salt and then let drain for a half hour or better yet you the long slender Asian eggplants. They are not bitter and the skin is so thin you can eat it. Great recipe. I like to add onion and/or garlic and olives. Submitted by:

What a great recipe. I took another reviewers advise about salting the eggplant, it really works. Also I added soy sausage by Morning Star and served the dish over pasta. Very filling. Will make this again for sure.

To take the bitterness out of eggplant, salt the cubes and place in a colander for 30 minutes, and squeeze out the liquid before cooking.

Add garlic and onions and optional olives (kalamata)

Made Chef Meg's recipe using just japanese eggplant. Excellent lunch, low calorie and great taste with the balsamic vinegar, and home grown tomatoes! Submitted by:

I love caponata - I add onion, peppers, and celery - and I skip the oil and begin with just a little water in the bottom of a big pot so things don't stick. I figure I get enough fat from other things I eat. Submitted by:

To take the bitterness out of eggplant, salt the cubes and place in a colander for 30 minutes, and squeeze out the liquid before cooking. Caponata has celery, usually, as in the picture, and Sicilian caponata adds in raisins as well as olives. Submitted by:

Added onions and garlic and some pinto beans for a touch of protein. Yummy. Submitted by:

I was surprised at how flavourful this dish was. It was really easy and very tasty. For one serving I added a few pieces of pre-cooked chicken breast for some added protein! Submitted by:
