How to make it

  • Trim the ends off the eggplants.
  • Using a sharp vegetable peeler, remove strips of peel, alternating to give the eggplant a vertical striped effect, it looks cool. If you leave all the peel on, it is too tough to mash nicely.
  • Cut in cubes and put in a colander, put over a bowl or in a sink and generously salt.
  • Allow to sit for 30 minutes.
  • Dry eggplant with paper towels.
  • Put eggplant in a veggie steamer over boiling water and steam for 15 minutes until easily pierced by a fork.
  • Transfer back to the colander and with your potato masher, break up the big chunks, allowing extra liquid to drain away.
  • Meanwhile in a skillet, with touch of olive oil, heat the tomatoes
  • Cut each tomato in half and using the coarse side of a grater, grate the tomato into the skillet.
  • Discard the tomato skins.
  • Add the minced garlic, half the cilantro, cumin, pepper and paprika.
  • Heat over low heat for 15 minutes
  • Stir in eggplant.
  • Sprinkle with remaining cilantro.
  • Put in serving bowl, top with feta, drizzle with olive oil.
  • Serve with warmed pita bread..
