For a rich and flavorful dish, we broil sweet peppers and eggplant until tender and silky, toss the vegetables with browned butter infused with Aleppo pepper (or sweet paprika plus red pepper flakes) and serve them atop a creamy bed of butter-enriched yogurt. A sprinkle of toasted walnuts adds crunch. The smoky, caramelized notes are nicely balanced by the vegetables’ natural sweetness and the cool tartness of the yogurt. Serve with warmed pita bread.

Tip

Don’t forget to allow the roasted peppers to steam in a covered bowl. This loosens their skins from the flesh so they’re easier to peel. When peeling the peppers, don’t worry about removing every last bit of skin, and don’t rinse them under water, as doing so washes away some of their flavor.

Yummy!
I fixed this with Coconut-Curried Black-Eyed Peas (recipe on this site) and brown rice and both my husband and I raved about it. Be prepared for a lengthy prepping and cooking time. Because both the peppers and eggplants require time under the broiler and the eggplant didn't fit on one sheet, I needed up broiling three sheet pans, one at a time. Allow 1.5 hours to make this dish.
