Italian Eggplant Ragout

Italian Eggplant Ragout created by Jonathan Melendez

Pulled from an old issue of vegetarian times. I used to be pretty leary of eggplant, but this was enchanting. Good on its own; better with pasta or rice.

  • Scoop out center and seeds of eggplant halves. Cut eggplants into 3/4 inch dice. Toss with salt in bowl and let it stand for at least 20 minutes. Drain off the fluid that collects, rinse well, and pat dry.
  • Heat olive oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, and saute until softened (about 5 minutes.) Add garlic, and cook 1 minute more, or until fragrant. Stir in tomatoes, chickpeas, and eggplants. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 15 minutes, or until eggplants are tender but not mushy.
  • Stir in capers and sugar, and cook 2 minutes more. Fold in parsley, and season with black pepper.

    I am sorry, but this is horrible! First, I should have been instructed to peal the eggplant. Second, 15 minutes, and my eggplant was basically still raw. I threw out all the leftovers, including what would have been my husband’s dinner, as he does not get home until about 9:15. There was no way I was going to serve him this after a hard days work! I really wanted to love this, but following the instructions ver batim, yielded me no dinner for me, or, my husband. I could think of ways to improve this, but seriously, I am still too hungry after no dinner, to even think about it.

    This was delicious. I served it over a bowl of polenta, and it was the ultimate comfort-food meal. I'll be making this again and often.
