    Default Zaalouk - Eggplant salad

    Description: Zaalouk is a salad made of eggplant. It is a beautiful dish and tasty too!

    (I got this recipe from an Egyptian Cooking Book and modified to my liking)
    Serving Size: Serves 4 - 6
    Time: 15 prep and 30-45 minutes cooking
    Difficulty: Easy

    Ingredients:
    1. 2 lbs. Fresh Eggplant
    2. 8 oz of Really Ripe Tomatoes
    3. 1 lemon
    4. 3 cloves of garlic
    5. 1 fresh hot red pepper
    6. 1 small can/ jar of black olives
    7. Olive Oil
    8. paprika
    Preparation:
    1. Wash the eggplants and remove their stems.
    2. Cook them at 325 for about 45 minutes.
    3. Remove them from oven and let them cool.
    4. Peel and cut them into bite-size chunks.
    5. Cut tomatoes into chunks
    6. Chop red pepper into small bits (remove seed if you don't like your food spicy hot - I leave them in!)
    7. Slice 1/2 of your lemon into thin, decorative slices
    Instructions:
    1. Slowly cook the eggplant in a skillet with 4 tablespoons of olive oil.
    2. Add in chunk tomatoes with a pinch of salt. Stir.
    3. Next add 1 teaspoon paprika and the crushed garlic.
    4. Finally add in the chopped red pepper.
    5. Cook for about 30 minutes.
    6. Stir and sprinkle with the juice of half of the lemon.
    7. Serve the Zaalouk lukewarm or cold. ( I like it both ways)
    8. Before serving garnish with black olives and lemon slices
