Grilled Eggplant with Moroccan Spices (Aubergines à la Marocaine)
You can paint slices of eggplant with olive oil and grill them over coals for this French-Moroccan salad. The only trick is to cook the eggplant over a gentle fire, so the texture is soft and creamy. Alternatively, it may be cooked on a stovetop grill, baked, or pan-fried. Be sure to let the eggplant marinate in the sauce for at least an hour.
