Salade Cuite
In: Healthy Foods, Recipes, Sides0

For those of you who have not heard of Salade Cuite you are in for a treat! Salade Cuite is a Moroccan type salad made with cooked down tomatoes and peppers with those authentic Moroccan flavours! Growing up in Montreal surrounded by a Moroccan community, I developed a taste and need for this beautiful dish. My friend’s mom used to make it fresh each week and so I’ve started making it myself. One week I found a small eggplant in the fridge that was going nowhere, so I decided to throw it in. It created this Salade Cuite Moroccan style ratatouille that was irresistible on crackers to my guests. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. If you don’t like eggplant, no problem, you can enjoy this plant-based gluten-free treat without it.

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (I used coconut oil)
  • 3-4 cloves of fresh garlic, pressed
  • 1 can (19oz) whole or chopped tomatoes
  • 1 small eggplant peeled and cut onto small cubes (~1-1/2 cups)
  • 4 red or green peppers (if you eliminate eggplant use 6)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 Tbsp paprika

 

Directions:

  • Sauté garlic in olive oil
  • Add tomatoes and eggplant. Allow it to cook down for about one hour
  • In the meantime, cut the peppers in half and discard the seeds
  • Roast the peppers in the oven at 450 until the tops get all black
  • Remove the peppers and allow them to cool in a large zip bag
  • Once they cool, remove from the bag and peel off the blackened skin
  • Chop the peppers and add to the tomato and eggplant
  • Add the remaining ingredients and cook for about 30-45 minutes longer allowing all the flavours to combine
  • Taste and add extra spices as desired
