  • 1/2 sm. onion, thickly sliced
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • approx. 6 leaves fresh basil
  • S/P to taste Good olive oils are peppery, so you should need to add very little pepper.


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.  

  2. Place eggplant, pepper, and onion in baking dish.  Season with salt.  

  3. Mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and garlic.  Pour over vegetables in baking dish.  Add capers.
