Caviale di melanzane
Mashed aubergines is a popular dish in most Mediterranean countries including south Italy, where you can find aubergine caviar in various versions with all sorts of herbs and spices. It is mostly served as a starter with breadsticks or crostini. This is the real simple version, which can be made over a bonfire at the beach. And by adding a pinch of chili or replacing mint with parsley, basil or coriander you can easily bring out your own favourite flavours.
