this is a persian dish that i altered to make more like a koresht (or sause) instead of stuffed eggplant which as it turns out im still working on! =) in its original form its a stew meat and greenbean sause that is tomatoe based and served over rice…in this form its an eggplant and tomato based sause served over rice! One of my staples from a before raw time. served withmastvajeir(still working on a good yogurt for this) and green salad.
2 large tomatoes preferabley heirloom or fresh, blended
½ shallot or sweet onion, minced
½ lemon for juice, squeezed
1 teaspoon cinnamonor more to taste
1 teaspoon salt or more to taste
1 dash sweetner your choice
1 eggplant or mushrooms or both, sliced into stew meat sizedstrips
1 teaspoon cinnamon, add to eggplant
½ cup olive oil, enough to cover eggplant
1 teaspoon salt, to taste
½ shallot, minced and added to eggplant
blend tomatoes spices and oil until smooth then add shallot and mix by hand put this in the dehydrator to warm.
slice eggplant into stips the size of stew meat strips, toss with cinnamon salt and olive oil and shallot leave on the counter or put in the dehydrator to warm.
make your version of rice( califlower,real rice, eggplant, what ever) lay eggplant stips over top and spoon sause over all of it ..this is so good and pretty authentic if i do say so!(and i learned from a real persian mother in law many years ago!)
