Grilled Eggplant, Tomato, and Pepper Salad / Fasouli

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 128


1 eggplant, medium sized (about 1 pound)
1 green bell pepper, large
1 red bell pepper, large
1 pound tomato, plum, fresh and ripe
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil, extra-virgin
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, or more to taste
1/2 cup parsley, coarsely chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf)
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


1. Preheat the grill to high.

2. When ready to cook, place the eggplant on the hot grate, and grill, turning with tongs as needed, until very soft and charred all over and the flesh is very soft. This will take 20 to 30 minutes. Char the peppers and tomatoes the same way, 16 to 20 minutes for the peppers, about 8 minutes for the tomatoes (see Note). Transfer the charred vegetables to a cutting board to cool.

3. Cut the stem end from the eggplant, then scrape the charred skin off the eggplant, peppers, and tomatoes with a paring knife. Stem and seed the peppers and core the tomatoes. Cut the vegetables into 1-inch cubes or squares and transfer to a serving bowl. Stir in the onion, garlic, oil, 2 tablespoons vinegar, parsley, salt, and pepper. Correct the seasoning, adding salt or vinegar as necessary the salad should be highly seasoned. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours before serving.

Serves 4 to 6

Note: Cook the tomatoes enough to blister the skins, but not so much that they become soft. The centers should remain firm.
