What You'll Require

Olive Oil 2 to 3 tbsp
Salt
Pepper

Utensils

  • 1 x Baking sheet
  • 1 x Frying pan
  • Serving Plate

Pre Preparation

1

Preheat oven to 180 degree Celsius
 

2

Prepare the Eggplant
 

3

Wash and dry the eggplant
 

4

Cut each eggplant in half horizontally, then use a small knife to cut diamonds into it without piercing the flesh. 
 

5

Turn the eggplant over and make 2 x 1cm / 1/3"" incisions in the skin of each eggplant - this way the excess water seeps out while roasting.
 

6

Crush Garlic pods
 

7

Wash and drain salad veggies
 

8

 Wash and chop coriander
 

Cooking

Baking the Eggplant
1

RESERVE 2 teaspoons of the Chermoula Paste and slather the rest onto the surface of the eggplant. 

2

Place onto a baking tray, spray with olive oil (or other oil or drizzle with oil) and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until eggplant is soft and cooked through and the surface is nice and crusty. 
 

3

Note: Start cooking the beef mince while the eggplant is baking
 

4

Remove from oven. Keep aside.
 

Cooking Beef Mince
1

Heat 1/2 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan, add onion and garlic, and cook for 2 minutes. 
 

2

Add beef and cook, breaking it up as you stir. 
 

3

When the beef is mostly cooked, but still has bits of pink, add the reserved Chermoula paste. Cook until the beef is browned- about 2 more minutes. 
 

4

Season with salt and pepper to taste.
 

5

Remove beef from the stove. Mix through pine nuts and  chopped coriander. Set aside.
 

Make the Salad
1

Combine salad veggies, red onion, feta, olives with drizzle of olive oil, lemon juice, salt and salad seasoning
