Vegetable Spread

Ikra Ovoshchnaia

1 medium sized eggplant
1 large carrot
1 large yellow onion
1 celery stick
1 pound fresh tomatoes or 16 ounce can peeled whole tomatoes or tomato sauce
2 cloves finely chopped garlic
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup chopped dill
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoons soy-sauce
2 bay leaves
olive oil

Fresh tomatoes should be peeled, chopped and stewed for 30-40 minutes on low heat (after bringing to boil) to make a sauce. In order to peel fresh tomatoes pour hot (boiling temperature) water over them. Pour boiling hot water over eggplant (it eliminates a possibly bitter taste of the eggplant skin).

Chop eggplant into cubes, salt and put into well-oiled frying pan. Stew on low for 30 minutes, mix frequently, add oil if pan gets too dry. Avoid burning the peel. When the eggplant gets soft and decreases in size add finely chopped (best to grind) carrot, finely chopped celery, onion, garlic, tomato sauce, black pepper, bay leaves. Mix cook for 20 minutes. Add dill, cilantro, parsley. Cook for another 10-15 minutes. Stir frequently.

Serves 6-8.
