So...while roasting the eggplant I whipped together a tahina based, wasabi sauce and the result was really tasty. Try it out and let know what you think about this Israeli/Japanese fusion-ish of dish.
Wasabi Roasted Eggplant Salad
Ingredients: (all measurements are approximate)
Medium sized eggplants - 2, roasted
Cilantro - 1/3 cup chopped
Tahina paste (raw) - 1/2 cup
Soy sauce - 1/2 tablespoon
Canola oil - 1/2 tablespoon
Wasabi - 1.5 tablespoons
Pepper - to season
1. Roast the eggplants on a gas burner until skin is charred and the inside is cooked and soft. 3 minutes per side should be enough. Once done, put in a bowl and cover with a towel to keep in steam. Once cook, scrape off charred skin and place the flesh in a mixing bowl.
2. Mix tahina paste, soy sauce, wasabi, oil and pepper until mixed well and smooth. Add to eggplant and fold in well.
3. Add chopped cilantro and serve with bread, pita or on its own. Can be served warm or cold.
