Eggplant Zaalouk is a cooked Moroccan salad consisting mostly of eggplant and tomato. It's very quick and easy to make, but is a deliciously warming and homely meal. You can eat it by itself with some rice for a vegetarian meal, or serve it with other Moroccan or Middle Eastern dishes for a delicious banquet.

Once the eggplants are blackened, remove from the grill and peel off the skins. Mash the flesh with a fork and then add to the tomatoes. Cook for about 10 to 15 minutes.

Add in lemon juice and salt to taste, as well as a bit of extra olive oil.

You can leave the eggplant zaalouk overnight in the fridge to help the flavours intensify, just bring it to room temperature before serving. It is still delicious served immediately.
