Eggplant, Roasted Pepper,
and Goat Cheese Terrine
with Parsley Sauce
Gourmet Archives

Serves 4 with leftovers.

2 eggplants (about 2-1/2 pounds total),
cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup bottled black olive paste such as
tapenade or olivada (available at specialty
foods shops and some supermarkets)
3 red bell peppers, each roasted
(procedure follows) and cut
lengthwise into 3 sections
7 ounces soft mild goat cheese,
such as Montrachet, sliced thin
Parsley Sauce (recipe follows)
as an accompaniment
Parsley springs for garnish if desired

For parsley sauce:
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves,
preferably flat-leaved
1 small garlic clove, sliced
4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons water
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Preheat the broiler. Arrange the eggplant slices in one layer on baking
sheets, brush both sides of the eggplant with the oil, and sprinkle them
with salt to taste. Broil the eggplant in batches about 4 inches from the
heat for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until it is golden and tender,
and transfer it with a metal spatula to paper towels to drain.
Line a loaf pan, 8 1/2 by 4 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches, with plastic wrap, leav-
ing a 3-inch overhang, and in it arrange the eggplant, the olive paste,
the bell peppers, and the goat cheese in several layers, beginning and
ending with the eggplant. Cover the eggplant with the plastic overhang,
weight the terrine with a 3-to-4-pound weight (such as a loaf pan filled
with canned goods), and chill it for 24 hours. (The terrine may be made
3 days in advance). Remove the weight, invert the terrine onto a cutting board, and discard
the plastic wrap. Cut four 3/4-inch-thick slices from the terrine, pour
about 2 tablespoons of the parsley sauce onto the center of each of 4
plates, tilting the plates to spread the sauce, and arrange a slice of the
terrine on each plate. Garnish each serving with a parsley sprig.

To Roast Peppers

Using a long-handled fork char the peppers over an open flame, turning them, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the skins are blackened. (Or broil the peppers on the rack of a broiler pan under a preheated broiler about 2
inches from the heat, turning them every 5 minutes, for 15 to 25 min-
utes, or until the skins are blistered and charred.) Transfer the peppers
to a bowl and let them steam, covered until they are cool enough to
handle. Keeping the peppers whole, peel them starting at the blossom
end, cut off the tops, and discard the seeds and ribs.

Parsley Sauce

In a blender purée the parsley and the garlic with the vinegar, the water,
the oil, and salt and pepper to taste until the sauce is smooth and strain it through a fine sieve set over a small bowl, pressing hard on the solids.

Makes about 1/2 cup.
