2 Eggplants (1 – 1-1/2 lbs ea)

4 Garlic cloves

2 Tomatoes; peeled and chopped

Salt & freshly ground pepper 2 T Fresh parsley; chopped

1 t Dried oregano; crumbled

1/3 c Olive oil, more if necessary

6 T Red wine vinegar, or more

Bake eggplants for 45 minutes in a 375 degree oven or in hot ashes. Peel off and discard the skin, then chop the eggplant flesh while still hot. Rub a wood or earthenware bowl with one of the garlic cloves, cut. Add the eggplant and beat with a wooden spoon– or if available use a wood mortar to pound the eggplants. Continue pounding or beating, meanwhile adding the tomatoes, a little salt and pepper, 2 to 3 cloves garlic, crushed, and the herbs. Continuing to beat, gradually add the olive oil alternately with the red wine vinegar. Taste, adding oil and vinegar if necessary; melitzanosalata should be thick and smooth. Serve cold with fish, meat, or fresh crisp bread. From “The Food of Greece” by Vilma Liacouras Chantiles”. Avenel Books, NY. Note: You will have excellent results by whipping melitzanosalata in a blender or food processor as well.
