This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe, Eggplant Caviar, was a darn easy sell in my household. I love eggplant, it is one of my favorite vegetables and I am always searching out new recipes for it. Dorie’s recipe calls for a nice soft roasted eggplant to be mixed up with onions, lemon juice, some chopped herbs, and tomatoes. The result is a dip which tastes light and refreshing, and with only a couple tablespoons of olive oil in the mix, is also guilt free!
We served our eggplant caviar for dinner with some roasted peppers, chickpea salad, and Dorie’s quinoa. Leftovers were polished off at lunch the next day, as per Dorie’s suggestion, in sandwiches with goat cheese and roasted peppers.
The only thing left to say is, yum! We will definitely be making this one again.
