1 teaspoon vegetable broth Herkules
2 fresh red peppers
2 medium-sized eggplants
½ cup of olive oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 large cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice or 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
fresh parsley


Roast the peppers and aubergines in a preheated oven at 250 ° C until the skin turns black and starts to come loose.
Place the roasted vegetables in a plastic bag and let them steam for 10 minutes.

Then remove the skin from the peppers and eggplants. Puree the peppers and eggplants until they form a firm mass.

Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan and fry the onion until it is very soft.
Add garlic and fry for 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in the paprika-eggplant pulp. Stir the remaining olive oil in a thin stream with a whisk until all the oil is absorbed. Then add a spoon of stock and let it melt.

Add the lemon juice or vinegar and season with salt and pepper.
Just before use, stir in the finely chopped parsley.
