  • Summary

    We roasted eggplant until it became soft and silky and topped it with Chermoula (a North African spice mix with garlic and preserved lemon). Sprinkled with tart feta cheese and fresh herbs.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
    • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
    • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
    • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes
    • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
    • ½ teaspoon coarse kosher salt
    • 1½ tablespoons preserved lemon peel, finely chopped (available in stores, about 1 lemon)
    • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 medium eggplants (not the long, thin Japanese variety)
    • 3-4 ounces feta cheese, (recommended: French or Greek)
    • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped (basil or parsley work well too)
