Category: Salads

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lg Globe eggplant OR 4 small
  • -Asian eggplants
  • 4 tb Extra virgin olive oil; plus
  • 2 tb Extra virgin olive oil; if
  • -desired
  • 3 Garlic cloves; chopped
  • 1/2 Lemon; juiced
  • Salt and cayenne pepper; to
  • -taste


Roast the eggplant(s) over an open flame, such as the top of a gas stove or
a barbecue, turning the eggplant until it is evenly charred and blackened.
Transfer the eggplant(s) to a bowl. Cover and set aside until cool enough
to handle.

Remove the eggplant from the bowl, saving any liquid that accumulates; this
will have a nice smoky flavor that will enhance the final dish. Peel away
the skin using your fingers and a paring knife. Discard the charred
blackened skin, though quite a bit of the charred bits will remain. (Don't
worry, they will disappear into the smoky eggplant mixture.)

Coarsely chop the eggplant flesh and return it to the bowl with any liquid
that has accumulated. Mix in the rest of the ingredients: olive oil, garlic
and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper. Serves 4.
