Moroccan Eggplant Salad

  • 1 large eggplant
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 small red onion, chopped (1/4 cup)
  • 1 tbsp red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley, divided
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Pierce eggplant and roast on a pan for 45 minutes.
  3. While eggplant is roasting, toast cumin in a dry pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and dark brown. Let cool and grind with a mortar and pestle.
  4. Remove flesh from roasted eggplant, discarding skin and stem; mash the eggplant with a potato masher.
  5. Toss eggplant flesh with onion, vinegar, sugar, 1 tablespoon oil, 1 tablespoon parsley, 1/2 teaspoon toasted cumin, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  6. Serve drizzled with remaining oil, parsley and cumin.
