Prep Time: 2 hours
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Nutritional Information Per Serving:
1 medium eggplant
1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, pushed through a press
1/4 Cup extra virgin olive oil
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- Prick eggplant in several places with a fork. Broil or place directly over a gas flame on stovetop about 15 minutes, turning frequently, until skin is charred all over and eggplant is soft. Set aside until cool enough to handle. Peel skin. Place eggplant in a colander for 15 minutes to drain bitter juices.
- In a large bowl, mix tomato, pepper, onion, garlic, oil and vinegar. Finely chop eggplant pulp with a knife; add to bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined, season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate at least 2 hours for flavors to blend. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
