Caponata

For 2-3 servings:

2 onions, chopped
2 celery stalks (with leaves), sliced
3 medium eggplants, cubbed
1/2 kg tomatoes, peeled and diced / 1 can diced tomatoes
100 g tofu, cubed (optional)
50 g olives
2-3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 teaspoon raw sugar
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
parsley, finely chopped
salt and pepper, to taste

Stir fry the onions and the celery in oil for 1-2 minutes. Add the eggplant and a little bit of water (not too much because the eggplants will leave enough moisture). Stir often.

When the eggplants have softened add the tomatoes, sugar, vinegar, tofu, olives and garlic. Cook until the sauce is reduced.

Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish parsley. Serve with salad.
