Preparation of the vegan caponata

  1. First, wash and clean the onion, celery, garlic, aubergines and parsley. The aubergines, after washing, must also be cut into cubes . Peeled tomatoes also need to be broken up.
  2. Now prepare the sautéed with the extra virgin olive oil base and then add the carrot, onion, celery, garlic, parsley, tomatoes and aubergines.
  3. All these ingredients are cooked together, until the aubergines soften. At this point everything is glazed with sugar and apple cider vinegar.
  4. Finally, add the pine nuts, capers, olives and fennel flowers for the last two minutes of cooking. The pine nuts are toasted over the fire, in order to intensify the flavor of the whole.
