Easy recipes with eggplants
Eggplants area must in our shopping list. We love them in all their versions, in the oven, in pâte, as garnish, fried… We have tried types such as listed ones, purple and even white ones. We love them all, despite being differences in their taste. We don’t normally wet them in milk or soaked them in water with salt to remove the bitterness as we don’t think they are so bitter or it doesn’t bother us; we think it’s part of their charm. We are introducing a series of recipes with eggplants.
Easy recipes with eggplants
1.- Mutabal, Baba ganoush or eggplant pâte
It is an typical Muslim dish, with subtile difference depending on the placer. It comes from Syria, but we have done the Maghreb version with pomegranate.
We need: egg plants, tahini (sesame paste), sesame oil, garlic, lemon juice, fresh chopped parsley, pomegranate, olive oil and a pinch of salt.
Just roast the eggplants in the oven at 335º F for 20 minutes. Remove the pulp and smash it with a fork. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix them uniformly. Serve it and decorate it with some pomegranate seeds and chopped parsley.
