2 eggplants, cut into small dice tossed with 1/2 cup olive oil
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 yellow onion, finely diced

2 red peppers, seeded and cut into 1/4 inch pieces

1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup pimento stuffed green olives, chopped
1/4 cup capers, drained

1/4 cup granulated sugar
1-28 ounce can of diced tomatoes in puree

  • Spread the oil coated eggplant on a baking sheet and roast at 350˚ for 25 minutes.
