The rich and sweet flavors of the roasted vegetables, along with the tanginess of the capers and vinegar, make this recipe a match for many items. We love it on toasted bread or crackers, or even as a sauce over couscous or pasta.
Roasted Vegetable Spread - 4 Cups
1 large eggplant, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 large red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
10 garlic cloves, smashed
½ cup extra virgin olive oil, divided
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
6 jarred roasted red peppers, cut into 2-inch pieces
¾ teaspoon sea salt
¾ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons fresh basil leaves
1½ tablespoons capers, drained
Preheat oven to 375°F with the rack in the upper position. Toss the eggplant, onion and garlic with 3 tablespoons of the olive oil. Spread on a baking pan and roast in the preheated oven for about 35 to 40 minutes, or until vegetables are browned. Put the remaining olive oil, balsamic vinegar and roasted peppers into the jar of your Cuisinart® PowerEdge® 1000 Watt Blender. Add the roasted vegetables and the remaining ingredients, except for the basil and capers. Auto Pulse on High for about 45 seconds. Run on High for 30 seconds. Add the basil and Pulse on High an additional 3 times. Transfer mixture to a medium mixing bowl; stir in the capers and serve.

Servings: Makes about 4 cups
