Egg(plant) Sandwich with Tahini & Ali-oli Sauce
I guess I can't really call this a sandwich, since sandwiches normally involve bread, but eggplant is better than bread, so there!
(Let's see how long it takes me to apologize to my beloved friend, Bread, and take back that statement)
For one sandwich, you will need:
-1 small eggplant
-2 Tbsp Ali-oli.....possible future post ;)
-1 Tbsp. Tahini
-2 tsp. vinegar
-1 Tbsp. olive oil
Prick the eggplant and bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes, or until soft all the way through.
Heat the oil and fry the egg for about 4 minutes, covered, without flipping, over medium high heat (number 7 on my crappy electric stove...HA). Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper while cooking.
Mix together the Tahini, Ali-oli and vinegar with a pinch each of salt and pepper.
Cut the eggplant in half lengthwise, sprinkle with salt and place the egg in the middle. Pour the sauce over the top and give it a little shake of smoked paprika. I'm thinking of re-naming this blog "Toni's love affair with smoked paprika".
