Simple Eggplant Caponata

Slightly adapted from http://www.elanaspantry.com/eggplant-caponata/

Research on eggplant has focused on an anthocyanin phytonutrient found in eggplant skin called nasunin. Nasunin is a potent antioxidant and free radical scavenger that has been shown to keep our cells healthy. With only 27 calories and approximately 3 grams of fiber per cup, eggplant is a valuable addition to a healthy diet. And it tastes good too!

1 medium eggplant, diced into ½-inch cubes (leave skin on)
½ cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
2-3 garlic cloves, diced
1 handful green olives (option: with jalapenos)
2-4 tablespoons olive oil
¼ teaspoon sea salt

In a large bowl, combine the eggplant, tomatoes, garlic olives, olive oil and salt
Transfer mixture to a baking dish

Bake at 350° for 35-45 minutes until eggplant is tender
