Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

3 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 medium sized eggplant - about 1 lb, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
6 plum tomatoes, finely chopped
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup walnuts or pinenuts
1/4 cup pitted green olives, chopped
1/4 cup raisins
2 to 3 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp capers, drained

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add onion, season with salt and pepper.

Cook, stirring occasionally until the onion begins to soften - about 5 minutes.

Add the garlic.

Cook a couple minutes more.

Add eggplant and tomatoes.


Cook, stirring occasionally until eggplant is very soft, about 15 minutes.

Add vinegar, nuts, olives, raisins, sugar, and capers.

Relish can be refrigerated, covered, up to 5 days.
