Frasco de berenjenas al escabeche


We have the best recipe to make a rich, easy and quick  pickled eggplants  , and we want to share it with you. This recipe is typical of Argentina and is a simple meal. Eggplants in oil are an Argentine classic. 

Eggplants look very delicious and tasty , for the most refined palates. Especially in its pickled version .


  • 3 eggplants
  • 2 liters of vinegar (can be apple or white alcohol)
  • 1 liter of oil (preferably olive)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Fresh oregano to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Boil water with vinegar and add the eggplants little by little and leave them, about 1 minute. Continue this process until they are tender in the center but remain firm.
  2. Drag them out and leave them on a tray.
  3. Cut garlic cloves into slices and set aside. We're close now! In the glass container already washed with water and detergent, place eggplants with pepper, bay leaf, garlic and oregano. Fill the container with oil until the eggplants are fully covered by it.
  4. Finally cover the container and store in the refrigerator. Our product should macerate and rest, at least one week (being ideal for a month) so that its flavors intensify and highlight

Please always try to wash your fruit or vegetables carefully. It is our recommendation for healthy and fresh cuisine.
I always recommend removing bitterness from your eggplants before cooking. Here I teach you how to remove bitterness from your eggplant !
Like many other vegetables, they rust quickly. That is why we always recommend that they be cut at the moment and not leave them hours before (and worse days), to prevent them from getting ugly.

 How to keep your eggplants pickled? 

We already wait a lot for our preparation to be ready. For proper preservation, once you open the glass jar or container of your choice, prioritize that the oil continues to cover all the eggplants as otherwise they will be spoiled.

 The best ways to eat and taste 

These pickled eggplants are an ideal side dish for roasted or grilled meats.
They can also be eaten as a cold entrance, cutting the eggplant into slices and smeared on bread, toast or bites.

me parece muy desproporcionada las cantidades de aceite y vinagre en proporción con las berenjenas, tal vez un error de tipeo, donde debía decir vasos dice litros
