On the same day Lisa and I recorded the Asian tofu salad video, she made us zaalouk--one of her favorite Moroccan dishes. Like a lot of other wonderful cooks, Lisa isn't one to measure her spices and other ingredients. She relies heavily on color, taste, texture and smell to guide her in the kitchen.
Being that I was working on my 2nd glass of wine, I failed to take notes myself. #thestruggle
Anyway, I didn't want to leave this post with just pictures, so here's a list of all the ingredients Lisa used in her recipe:
1 large eggplant
Diced tomatoes, canned
Vinegar (red wine or champagne) or lemon juice or sumac (something acidic)
Saute aromatics in olive oil, then cook everything until soft, and mash it up with a potato masher.
Drizzle olive oil on top.
Eat with pita bread scooping the zaalouk in with your fingers--in true Moccorran style.
Have a great weekend!
