Moroccan Eggplant Salad 

I make this eggplant salad almost every week. Among all of the different types of eggplant salads you can find at a moroccan shabbat table, this one is my favorite. I grew up having it in Morocco every shabbat and here I am following the tradition! Dont be afraid to add one or two tbsp of oil during the cooking, eggplants absorb oil, and as the title says, this is a Moroccan recipe! Enjoy. 

  • 2 medium size eggplants, peeled and washed 
  • 1 red pepper diced
  • 1 large tomato grated 
  • 3 garlic cloves minced 
  • Salt 
  • Paprika
  • Cumin
  • Vegetable oil

In a large pan, heat up 2 tbsp of oil. Add the eggplants and peppers stirring so they don’t burn. Add the grated tomatoes and spices.

Cover and let it cook on a low fire for about 20min. Add 2 tbsp of oil. With a large fork, mash the eggplants and peppers until the eggpnts become tender. 

Serve cold with cilantro.
