Caponatina - Italian appetizer (Family Recipe)

Caponatina - Italian appetizer (Family Recipe)

1 med. Eggplant - chopped small
1 med. Zucchini - chopped small
2 lg. carrots - chopped small
3 stalks celery - chopped small
3 med. Onions - chopped small
1 lb. fresh mushrooms - chopped small
1 3 oz. bottle capers
1/2 lb. Italian green olives
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce (must be DelMonte)
3/4 c. apple cider vinegar

I make this one too Msmofet - it seems great cooks
cook alike

I dice, season and saute the eggplant separately from the
onion/carrot/celery (use a big wok for this)
then add the capers,tomato etc to the onions
and add the sauteed eggplant at the very end.

I also use whole peeled plum tomato instead of sauce.
