Warm Zaalouk (Eggplant-Tomato Salad) With Chickpeas

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

Zaalouk is a Moroccan eggplant and tomato salad that incorporates a large amount of garlic and fresh herbs. It's best made in the height of Summer when the tomatoes are in their prime, and can be served warm or cold - I prefer it warm and mixed with chickpeas.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425F, lightly grease or line a baking sheet with foil.
Place the eggplant halves cut-side down on the sheet.
Bake until very soft, about 45 minutes.
Scoop the flesh out into a bowl, sprinkle with lemon juice and reserve.
In a saucepan, cook tomatoes, garlic, chili powder, cumin and paprika in the broth until the mixture has become a thick sauce, about 20-25 minutes.
Stir in the mashed eggplant mixture and chickpeas and warm through, then remove from heat and stir in the parsley.
