Samfaina

Samfaina

Samfaina (sam-FINE-nah) is a mix of onions, garlic, eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, and zucchini. Japanese eggplant is easy to work with, as it holds its shape well through cooking, but regular eggplant is also good. The exact proportions for this recipe are not crucial: A bit more tomato or less bell pepper are fine improvisations.
