This Sicilian dish - and I'm aware this is a bold statement - is one of the most delicious vegetable preparations we know, a combination of creamy, golden diced eggplant, salty capers and olives, sweet tomato sauce and toasted slivered almonds that reflects Sicily's fascinating culinary history. Serve warmed through or at room temperature, scattered with the toasted slivered almonds. Because of the high acid content, this keeps well in the fridge for a few weeks - almost like a chutney or pickle. It also freezes well.

This is a lovely accompaniment for the kingfish Salmoriglio or herb-crusted lamb but also makes a great vegetarian stand-alone lunch or supper, with a hunk of bread and maybe some grilled haloumi or poached eggs.
