Caponata With Steak
A caponata is a mixed Mediterranean vegetable stew, traditionally starring aubergine. However I came across this one on BBC Good Food using pepper, tomatoes and celery, which were all the ingredients I had at the time and so I decided to give it a go. I served this with homemade courgette and cheddar soda bread to mop up the stew, but you could use pasta or rice instead if you like. Its really yummy and packed full of flavour. The steak is delicious with it, but you could easily swap it for chicken or a white fish fillet, such as cod or haddock. If you are vegetarian, then it can easily be made without meat, just make the caponata more filling by adding some beans or even lentils.
