Recipes for Passover
ROASTED EGGPLANT SPREAD, HELENE'S WAY

[Printer Friendly]

Helene Feldman of Toronto shared this luscious recipe with me which she adapted from The Barefoot Contessa by Ina Garten. Helene adds more eggplant, red pepper and onion. This makes a larger quantity and reduces the amount of fat per serving.

2 medium eggplants, peeled
3 red bell peppers, seeded
1 large or 2 medium red onions, peeled
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 tbsp. good-quality olive oil
1 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp. tomato paste

Preheat oven to 400F. Cut eggplants, bell peppers and onions into 1-inch cubes. Toss them in a large bowl with garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread them on a baking sheet. Roast for 45 minutes, until the vegetables are lightly browned and soft, tossing once during cooking. Cool slightly.

Place the vegetables in a food processor fitted with Steel Blade; add tomato paste and pulse 3 or 4 times to blend. Taste for salt and pepper.

Makes 10 to 12 servings
