Yotam Ottolenghi's Chermoula Aubergine

Danny greeted Mr. ETB at the door tonight with:

"Mama made a sumptuous feast."

I'm not sure that's an exaggeration. I substituted cous cous for the bulgar, and I added some cooked French lentils, otherwise, I prepared the chermoula and aubergine as in the recipe. The results were fantastic (as his recipes always are. Good thing I don't live in London, or I'd be at his restaurant every day and gain three stone in the first month.) You think you dislike aubergine (I know, I know) but this one is different . Really, it is. The chermoula recipe alone is worth bookmarking the page.

Recipe may be found HERE.

I swear, Danny tucked into the eggplant like it was macaroni cheese. It was sumptuous.

I made this last night and cannot believe how fantastic it is. How does he do it?

I don't think I've ever tried one of his recipes and had it be anything less than amazing.

I'd really love to get my hands on the new cookbook-as soon as it is available here.
