Zaalouk (Moroccan Eggplant Tomato Salad)
|Cooking time||45 minutes|
|Total time||45 minutes|
This is a hearty main dish that can be served over brown rice, or served as a dip with veggies and pitas (it's equally as good hot or cold). Grilling or roasting the eggplant first will give it a more complex flavor.
In a large skillet or pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add eggplant, onion, tomatoes, garlic, parsley, spices and harissa (if using). Cook uncovered for 5 minutes, stir well, then cover and cook over medium heat for 30-45 minutes. Stir occasionally, gently mashing the mixture as it simmers. The dish is done when everything is well blended and resembles a chunky paste. Stir in lemon juice and season with salt and black pepper before serving
