๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Sicilian caponata with Italian bread and rocket

This is my entry for #livxjuliaveganuaryworldtour European week ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒ so itโ€™s been a quieter week for our cooking challenge – I know I for one have been super busy and tired this week so defo fancied making something simpler and cosier.

But donโ€™t be mistaken because this was absolutely GLORIOUS!! I first had caponata when my brother and his gf made it for me a couple of years ago, and have cooked it/eaten it out since then but itโ€™s never been as yummy as it was that first time!! I managed to get the recipe Joe and Trish used and itโ€™s one by @seriouseats .

For those unfamiliar with caponata, itโ€™s a Sicilian sweet and sour aubergine dish. The recipe describes it as โ€˜shockingly flavoursomeโ€™ and it really is!! Itโ€™s got an unbelievable amount of rich and intense ingredients that come together to create a complex, ridiculously tasty dish, including garlic, capers, cinnamon, raisins, pine nuts, tomato pureฬe, balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, mint, parsley and olive oil, as well as aubergine, red pepper and celery. I also added sundried tomatoes and olives for an extra intense Mediterranean flavour.

I served it with my fave bread ever – @crostamollica golden Italian bread, rocket, and of course balsamic vinegar and olive oil on the side ๐Ÿ˜‹

This was such a hit with all of us – so easy and quick once youโ€™ve chopped everything! Will be having this again soon me thinks ๐Ÿ‘€

Thanks to those who contributed this week – hope to see your creations next week too ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒ
