Eggplant Stemperata

Eggplant Stemperata

This method of cooking the eggplant for this stew may not be traditional, but uses a lot less olive oil than sautéing demands. Stemperata is a traditional Sicilian-style stew, which often contains chicken or a firm fish such as swordfish. We like it this way as a vegetable dish.
