Change it up: Aside from the eggplant and tomatoes, the vegetables here are flexible—you could add an extra bell pepper or omit the bell pepper entirely. You could add some carrot or zucchini or yellow squash. If you don’t like raisins, leave them out. Not all caponata recipes call for them, anyway. You might enjoy pine nuts sprinkled on top, which is another regional variation.
Make it vegan: Substitute sugar for the honey.
Make it gluten free: This dish is gluten free, as long as you serve it with gluten-free accompaniments.
