How to prepare eggplant salad with pumpkin

Bake eggplant and zucchini

1. Eggplants are chosen to have a glossy black skin, slightly fluffy to the touch. More secrets about choosing the best eggplant for salad find here. The zucchini should be about the size of an eggplant, so we use 60-66% eggplant and 40-33% pumpkin. Wash the vegetables well, drain them and bake them on a well-heated surface (hob, disc, grill, etc.). Eggplant is recommended to prick with a fork, otherwise it could explode during baking.

2. Cook the vegetables around until the peel is charred in places, which will give them the characteristic smoky taste. To be ready, not only must the shell be burnt, but the core must be very soft, from the tail to the tip. Well, the eggplant will be ready before the zucchini. We prepare a bowl over which we place a plastic sieve. Place the eggplant on a grinder and, with the help of a spoon, split the peel and scoop out the baked core, draining it in the prepared sieve.

3. The zucchini core will soften a little harder, but when it is ready, we scoop it out like eggplant and add it to the sieve.

4. Both the eggplant and the zucchini are allowed to drain well in the sieve. In the case of eggplant, to remove the bitter juice, in the case of zucchini, to get rid of excess water.

Preparing the salad

5. For the pumpkin eggplant salad, as for any other eggplant salad, once the ripe vegetables have drained well, chop finely.

6. Transfer the eggplant and zucchini, cooled to room temperature and finely chopped, in a bowl. From now on, several different approaches are possible.

a) I added the mustard and poured in a very thin thread, as for mayonnaise, while mixing with the mixer.

Drop by drop, the oil was completely incorporated and I obtained this creamy and light-colored salad / paste. I added very finely chopped onion.

I seasoned the salad with salt to taste and refrigerated it for an hour before serving.

b) A more convenient alternative is to mix the eggplant salad with the pumpkin with 150 grams of mayonnaise, then add the onion, mustard and salt to taste. You can use a classic or quick mayonnaise, one prepared with boiled egg yolk or even a vegetable one. Click on any of the pictures below for recipes.


c) Another possible approach is to prepare the salad as I showed at Romanian eggplant salad recipe. In this case, in the cooked and chopped eggplant and zucchini will add 1-2 egg yolks and mustard and mix with 130 ml. of sunflower oil, added drop by drop. At the end, of course, add the onion and salt to taste.

In any of the variants, season the eggplant salad with the pumpkin as you like and enjoy it, it tastes great! May it be useful to you!

Eggplant dish with pumpkin and tomatoes

For my taste, pumpkins and eggplants are neither similar nor complementary. Each of them tastes good with tomatoes, spices and tomato sauce, but together they do not make a dish, that is, a harmonious whole. Eventually I separated them and ate them like that.

maria mihalache (Chef de cuisine), July 10, 2010

For these summer days it is a delight.

Mihaela11 (Chef de cuisine), July 9, 2010

Very fine and fragrant. It looks great!

constanta proca (Chef de cuisine), July 8, 2010

Alina, this time I didn't put the tomatoes on the grill, because they were in the oven long enough. They are more sensitive and you would have ruined their shape. Licu, thank you.

licu pop (Chef de cuisine), July 8, 2010

An excellent idea. but I'll grill directly. I have a grill with volcanic stone and it gives a great aroma to vegetables. Saved and maximum note.

ALINA BANICA (Chef de cuisine), July 8, 2010

Very good with grilled vegetables! I would have tried to bake the tomatoes a little too!

Varadi Silvia (Chef de cuisine), July 8, 2010

Eugene, thank you, but there's a long way to go. Sidy, he sure goes to a barbecue. Yes Ramona, I like Mediterranean flavors, they are very healthy and good. Thank you and I'm glad you like it.

Piri Piri and Cinnamon (Chef de cuisine), July 8, 2010

Delicious. in the Mediterranean style.

Manolovici Eugen (Chef de cuisine), July 7, 2010

Beautiful presentation. striving for perfection, this is noticeable.

LALY (Chef), July 7, 2010

How good it is. And we like zucchini and eggplant. I haven't done it in a long time. I have to do it too.

Sidy (Chef), July 7, 2010

What goodnesseeeee! And do you think that this dish will not be good with a barbecue?

husni (Chef de cuisine), July 7, 2010

It's wonderful, I made this dish with fried eggplant, you gave me a great idea with grilled eggplant.

Eggplant dish with tomatoes and garlic is a kind of delicious stew with eggplant and ripe tomatoes, meaty and sweet, flavored with garlic and green parsley.

Eggplants with tomatoes and garlic, with very little sauce, fixed enough to soak a slice of bread, are so good that I could eat every week.

My husband is a big eggplant lover. I had originally bought the eggplants to prepare a simple eggplant salad, as he likes, but for various reasons I did not have time to bake them. They stayed in the fridge for more than a week and they seemed to have lost their freshness,

Then I decided to prepare a new recipe, in the style of orange Turkish eggplants, whose recipe you can see here.

Eating eggplant with tomatoes and garlic is easy and fast. In 30 minutes everything is ready and you can enjoy the best summer food. The good part is that the faster you do it, the faster it ends. You have nothing to put in the fridge for the next day. This only happens if you increase the amount of ingredients used.

I used few ingredients, nothing complicated or expensive, I assure you.

The recipe is very good during Lent. In winter we can replace fresh tomatoes with canned tomato pulp.

If you are an eggplant lover, on Diva In The Kitchen you will find a lot of recipes. I gathered them in this collection.

I hope you like the recipe for Greek moussaka or stuffed eggplant (I couldn't choose anything from everything I proposed because I like them all), but you will also find a lot of salads in this collection.

Eggplant with tomatoes and garlic I prepared in the oven. I don't turn on the oven too often in the summer, so this recipe is perfect.

If you don't like the term "eggplant food" you can call it "stew".

Regardless of the name you choose, I leave below the list of ingredients and how to prepare it.

I'd be glad to tell you if you liked it. And if you take a picture of him, I will publish it.


1/2 bunch of green parsley

I prepared the ingredients at hand so that everything would be quick and easy to prepare. I peeled the eggplants only partially, leaving strips of peel on them. I cut them into cubes and dipped them in a bowl of water and salt, as I told you and here. I left them for about 30 minutes.

During this time I finely chopped the onion and hardened it in 2 tablespoons of oil. I peeled the tomatoes, then cut them into cubes.

If the tomatoes are very ripe, they are cleaned quickly, but you can ease the process by growing them crosswise at the top and immersing them for 30 seconds in boiling salted water.

I put the chopped tomatoes over the hardened onions and left them on low heat for about 2 minutes. I poured 100 ml of water and left them for another 5 minutes on a very low heat. During this time I drained the eggplant.

I hardened them in hot oil, over low heat, until they browned slightly, then I added the garlic passed through the press and the tomatoes. I also poured the thick tomato juice and left it on the fire for about 2 minutes.

I turned off the heat, added chopped green parsley, mixed and then divided the eggplant dish with tomatoes and garlic in plates.

There is nothing left. The plate looks as if it has been washed.

And that's what I wish for you too!
