Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut eggplant into approximately 1/2 (1.5 cm) inch cubes and sauté in a large skillet with half the olive oil until brown. Remove from skillet.
  2. Dice onions and sauté in remaining half of the olive oil until soft and translucent.
  3. Add tomatoes and cook on low heat for 15 minutes.
  4. In a small, dry pan carefully toast pine nuts. Shake frequently to prevent burning. Remove from pan when they start to brown.

  6. Add the contents of the small pan, the eggplant, pine nuts, chopped olives, and capers to the skillet. Cover and simmer on low for twenty minutes.
