ROASTED AUBERGINE IMAM
offer valid till 31st March 2010
Aubergines, or in Greek, melitzana (pronounced meh-lee-tzah-nah) feature
heavily in both traditional and modern Greek cuisine. We love to bake, fry,
grill, puree, roast and stuff this truly versatile vegetable.
At Odysea one of our favorite ways to cook aubergines is ‘Roasted
Aubergine Iman’ We based this recipe on the famous ‘Imam Bayildi’ which
literally translated from Turkish means ‘The Imam fainted’ There are
various stories as to why he fainted when he tasted this dish, but the most
popular is that he was over taken by the heavenly taste and aroma!
Others say that he passed out when he realised how much olive oil was
used in it’s preparation, and how much that would cost him!
To make our Roasted Aubergine Imam we first roast the aubergines then
slowly bake them in a rich tomato sauce with extra virgin olive oil, plenty of
onions, garlic and a delectable blend of herbs and spices. It tastes
fantastic simply served warm or at room temperature with some fresh
crusty bread, or as a side dish with roasted meat. Alternatively, for a more
hearty meal, try serving warm with rice, a baked potato or pasta and a
generous helping of grated Kefalotyri or Parmesan cheese to taste.
