Home Gastronomy Pickled eggplants

Pickled eggplants

Pickled is a great preserves. Rich. It allows us to keep the food and also enjoy their taste so particular. Ideal for eggplants and other delicacies


This is a typical dish of my great-grandmother's Italian cuisine. A crack la Giulia cooking. And now that veganism, naturism and vegetarianism broke into our lives to stay, pickled eggplants are reborn.

It is a super easy dish to prepare. Like any preserves derived from the pickle, its peak to eat it is between 2 weeks and 3 months after preparation. Another advantage is that it's there at any time. Available, rich, healthy. Alone, with  bread  or bruschettas. Great. And they'll save you from a hurry. Not less data. They accompany  meats  or go alone.


  • 1 kg of eggplants
  • 1 onion 1
  • red bell
  • Garlic 2 cloves.
  • coarse salt
  • oil
  • vinegar
  • .
  • paprika
  • black pepper
  • laurel


Cut the eggplants into slices about 1cm thick. No need to peel them. Leave them for half to 1 hour in coarse salt in a colander. Rinse well.

Boil 1 liter of water and 1 vinegar, with bay leaf and pepper. Add the eggplants and cook 3 to 4 minutes. Strain. Allow to cool.

Sauté bell and  onion  and stand.

When everything is ready, mix some of the ingredients in a tupper and bring to the refrigerator. Those are for eating in a few days. The rest, we will lay it in layers, interspersing eggplants with bell and onion, seasoning, of course. In the end, we season with a good dose of olive oil. And we save. Boccatto di cardinale, as Giulia said.
