Roasted Eggplant Spread
From Barefoot Contessa, I think.
1 medium eggplant, peeled
2 red bell peppers, seeded
1 red onion, peeled
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 tbsp good olive oil
1 1/2 tsp coarse salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp tomato paste
Preheat the oven to 400f degrees.
Cut the eggplant, bell pepper, and onion into 1-inch cubes. Toss them in a large bowl with the garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Scrape the mixture out and spread onto a baking sheet. Roast for 40 minutes, until the vegetables are lightly browned and soft, tossing once during cooking. Cool slightly.
Place the vegetables in a food processor fitted with a steel blade, add the tomato paste, and pulse 3 or 4 times to blend. Taste for salt and pepper.
