Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450F. Puncture the eggplants all over with a fork and rub generously with olive oil.
  2. Place eggplants on a parchment lined baking sheet. Place baking sheet in oven and roast for 30-45 minutes until eggplants are soft and collapsed. Remove from oven and let cool.
  3. Scoop flesh from skin into a medium bowl (it’s okay if bits of charred skin get in there too). Mash eggplant with a fork to break up, then mix in garlic, Cashewgurt®, chopped parsley, Aleppo pepper or Korean chili flake, and 2 Tbsp. oil; season with salt.
