Smoked Eggplant Purée

Serves 2

Smoked Eggplant Purée

By Camille Styles


  • 1 eggplant
  • red wine vinegar
  • canola oil


  1. Create a bed of coals in your barbecue pit using hardwood charcoal or wood.
  2. Place the whole eggplant on the coals. Rotate ¼ turn every 15 minutes until charred on all sides. Be careful when turning so you don’t puncture the skin. (but it’s ok if you do!) 
  3. Remove from the coals and let sit to cool to a temperature that will allow you to handle it.
  4. Carefully make a slit down the side exposing the inside.
  5. Scoop out everything on the inside leaving all the burnt skin behind.
  6. Put all of the insides into the blender. Add the vinegar to taste and the oil is added to help create a smooth consistency.
