French Fridays: Eggplant caviar from My Paris Kitchen

Eggplant caviar from David Lebovitz My Paris Kitchen on eatlivetravelwrite.comThis week’s Cook the Book Fridays recipe from David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen was perfect for me  to make for myself last week in France before I left for Spain. I had two tiny eggplants and I wasn’t sure what I would make with them – too small for anything really, except a micro batch of this “Eggplant caviar/ Caviar d’aubergine” – basically a garlicky herby spread made with roasted eggplant (the recipe called for this to be smoked before roasting but I don’t have any capacity to smoke anything so it was simply oven-roasted). Not much to say here – except that once again, this reminded me of how easy dips and spreads are to make from scratch and I made a mental note to make this again soon 🙂

  1. Another enjoyable recipe from David that was easy to make. Perfect for this time of the year when all the fresh veggies are in abundance.

  2. Off to Spain to do……’ve already hiked El Camino de Santiago, right? Have a great time. Leaving one wonderful country for another. I thought this dish, which I loved, was garlicky. I liked it alot, however. I charred under my roaster. I agree, dips and mixes and sauces are easy to make from scratch if you keep the basic ingredients on hand. I made a normal batch of eggplant caviar, split with a friend and it’s gone.Will make again.
