Baked eggplant salad with garlic and ripe tomatoes

Even though today they are part of the tradition of Romanian gastronomy, eggplants come from the distant lands of South Asia. 4,000 years ago, they were grown in the Assam region (eastern India) and in Burma. Gradually, the vegetable spread throughout Asia where, even today, there are varieties of eggplants of all colors. In fact, in Asian cuisine, eggplant is a place of honor. According to local customs, in China, a woman, before the wedding, as part of her dowry, had to bring twelve recipes for preparing eggplants. In the first centuries of the first millennium AD, eggplants arrived in North Africa, brought in the caravans of the Persians, who called the eggplants "badengan", and Arab navigators introduced them throughout the Mediterranean basin. In the Middle Ages, the Arabs also brought eggplants (which they called "al-badinjan") to Spain, Andalusia and Catalonia, where they are still called "eggplant". In the 14th century, they entered Italy and France (via North Africa). Doctors and botanists of the time blamed the consumption of eggplant fever and epileptic seizures, calling this vegetable "the fruit of Sodom" - "Solanum insanum".


Eggplant salad

Eggplant salad is one of my favorite dishes. The taste of eggplant, slightly smoked with a slight onion aroma, conquers me every time. And the tastier and more flavorful it is, the easier it is to make. Bake the eggplants in a few minutes, clean them and let them drain. While they are draining, we can make anything else around the house, and then we mix them with the chopped onion and mayonnaise and the salad is ready. I recommend baking them as early as possible in the morning when it is cooler outside, so this stage will not be a torment.

Well-baked eggplants must be dark in color, the tail green, not dry and must be soft. The strong ones are not cooked well.

INGREDIENT:

  • 250 g eggplant
  • 1/2 onion
  • olive oil (optional)
  • salt
  • Sesame seeds

METHOD OF PREPARATION:

1. Wash the eggplants, dry them, prick them with a fork and bake them. Here we have two options: either bake in the flame from the stove, one by one, or in the oven. The first option is good when we have few baked eggplants, if we have larger quantities it will take a long time. We turn the eggplants on all sides and make sure they bake evenly.

2. The next step is to peel them. While they are still hot, cut them with a long knife and take out the pulp with a spoon and put it in a sieve to drain. We will take care to clean them of the burned parts. We will leave them to drain for at least 2 hours, because the juice will give a bitter taste to the salad and we do not want this.

3. To grind ripe eggplant we have two options, depending on the texture we want to get and the time we have. We chop them on a wooden bottom with a sharp knife, or put them on the food processor. In the first version, they are crushed, and in the second, they are made into a paste.

4. Add finely chopped onion, a tablespoon of olive oil and mayonnaise. Season with salt, mix well, garnish the salad with sesame seeds and serve with homemade bread or sticks.
