If you read my Morocco recap, you know we had the most magical trip. We loved the culture, the people, and of course, the food. When the amazing chef from Riad Fes said I could share a few recipes from our cooking class with you, I was SO excited. When we took a cooking class and we made this Moroccan Eggplant (with Chermoula) appetizer that blew our minds! We had a blast in the kitchen cooking up all sorts of traditional Moroccan dishes and I am so excited to share some of them with you!

This chermoula is made with fresh herbs, good quality olive oil, roasted red bell pepper, and all the fresh Moroccan flavors we have come to love and cherish since our trip. I love this sauce on top of chicken, meat, and fish. It’s simply perfect, and easy to prepare!

It’s obviously amazing on these fried eggplants, but you can use this sauce to top anything. It would be great on all cuts of meat, with other vegetables, or as a dip with fresh veggies or crackers.

Ingredients

  • 3 medium-sized eggplants
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup parsley
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Avocado oil, for frying

Directions

  1. Cut the eggplant into 3/4-inch slices. Add a little salt to disgorge. Fry the eggplant slices in some hot avocado oil until both sides are golden.
  2. Put the red pepper in the oven on broil for ten minutes, or over an open flame on the stove-top tossing for a few minutes until the skin blackens. Place in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap and let steam for a few minutes. Peel the pepper to remove the skin and keep only the flesh. Finely chop the pepper.
  3. In a bowl, grate the garlic, chop the parsley and cilantro very finely, add the olive oil, lemon juice and spices, chopped peppers and marinate.
  4. Spread the marinade on a face of each slice of eggplant. Serve!
