Caponata Sub

I have a tendency to avoid eggplant.  The meaty texture and somewhat mild flavor makes me wish I were eating something else- but the photo on the page combined with my unnatural love of sandwiches made me think I really needed to try this dish.

The sauté has eggplant, celery, onions, pine nuts and dried currants.  IMG_5167

Add tomato paste, spice, and pop it on a roll with some provolone and pecorino gives you this…

Pop in oven to melt together… and in my case it came out looking pretty unappetizing.  BUT it was REALLY tasty.  Didn’t miss meat- loved it.  I actually ate it for lunch four days in a row.  I ran out of the left overs and made it again.  Really good.  Just the right amount of spice for me!

So imagine that mine turned out looking like this….

Because that’s what it tasted like.

Recipe can be found here.

I just went to the store for more eggplant.  Really.
