There are numerous versions of the typical Sicilian eggplant dish. Some add olives, pine nuts, and even raisins. Grilling the Eggplant and Cauliflower lends my caponata a smokey, distinctive flavor. The sugar adds a bit of sweetness and the acid in the red wine vinegar enhances the taste of the vegetables.
For me, this is a stand-alone dish, but it also makes an excellent side for salmon or meat.
