Serving Size:
Cook Time:
Imperial (US)
  • 4 small eggplants (about 2 pounds), sliced into 3/4-inch rounds
  • 2 medium onions, sliced into 3/4-inch rounds
  • 2 ripe bell peppers (or another type of large sweet pepper), halved and seeded
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp capers, rinsed and roughly chopped
  • Pinch of dried oregano
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper

Pairing Notes: Because the 777 clone is a balancing act between earth and fruit, pairing it with these grilled vegetables highlights the earthiness and allows the rich fruit aromas to shine.

Chef's Tip: Be careful with the oregano, too much can kill the prettiness of the 777 clone.
