Roasted Eggplant Spread

Another Montreal favorite is the Mediterranean Eggplant spread that Danny’s mom buys.  It is spicy and you can’t stop eating it, especially with a crusty challah on the table.  I tried an eggplant recipe a few weeks ago which failed, but I was not giving up.  I made a plea on Facebook and got a few ideas, but chose this one from Barefoot Contessa because I like her and her recipes are usually full of really intense flavor. 

I made the recipe as it was written and added 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper – the spice is what makes the Montreal eggplant so yummy.  This recipe was very easy and turned out great.  Thanks Alison!
