11 Mashed Egg Plant on Wed Oct 29, 2008 7:34 pm

SSC


Admin
2 large purple eggplants
coarse sea salt
3 large tomatoes
6 cloves of garlic, peeled crushed
1 bunch of cilantro, stems removed, chopped
2 teaspoons of cumin
1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes
2 tsps of sweet paprika
1 lemon, juiced
1/3 cup of crumbled feta cheese
extra virgin olive oil, enough to drizzle over top
warmed pita bread
green and black cured olives

Directions
Trim the ends off the eggplants.
Using a sharp vegetable peeler, remove strips of peel, alternating to give the eggplant a vertical striped effect, it looks cool. If you leave all the peel on, it is too tough to mash nicely.
Cut in cubes and put in a colander, put over a bowl or in a sink and generously salt.
Allow to sit for 30 minutes.
Dry eggplant with paper towels.
Put eggplant in a veggie steamer over boiling water and steam for 15 minutes until easily pierced by a fork.
Transfer back to the colander and with your potato masher, break up the big chunks, allowing extra liquid to drain away.
Meanwhile in a skillet, with touch of olive oil, heat the tomatoes
Cut each tomato in half and using the coarse side of a grater, grate the tomato into the skillet.
Discard the tomato skins.
Add the minced garlic, half the cilantro, cumin, pepper and paprika.
Heat over low heat for 15 minutes
Stir in eggplant.
Sprinkle with remaining cilantro.
Put in serving bowl, top with feta, drizzle with olive oil.
Serve with warmed pita bread..
