There you go, a meal that is all about
Charred Eggplant & Red Peppers Spread
2 red peppers
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
½ tsp. grated fresh garlic
½ tsp. salt
2 tbsps. Olive oil.
Char the eggplant and peppers on the stove/grill until they are completely charred. Remove the inside of the eggplant and place in a sieve to drain excess liquid for 15 minutes. Place the peppered in a bowl and tightly cover with cling film. Once the peppers have cooled down, peel them and remove grains. Add the peppers to the eggplant to remove the liquids.
Chop finely both the eggplant & peppers
and mix well with rest of ingredients.
Take a fresh loaf of bread,
make sure you get the one with the nice crust,
cut the loaf to lengthwise slices.
Generously place the freshly made spread,
crumble your choice of feta cheese,
sprinkle chopped chives, mint leaves
and drizzle your finest olive oil.
Best consumed with fresh cut tomatoes
and black olives on the side :)
