Eggplant Involtini with Grilled Ratatouille
The involtini and ratatouille can be refrigerated separately for up to 2 days.
Bold beers made with rye, like Terrapin's Rye Pale Ale from Georgia, have a great grassy, peppery character that's good with eggplant's bitter notes. A light-bodied red wine without too much tannin, like a Dolcetto d'Alba from Piedmont, would also work well.
Pairing Note Not all wines and beers are vegan (that is, made without using products such as gelatin). For details, contact the producers directly.
