Smoky Eggplant Dip (Melitzanosalata)

  • SERVINGS: makes about 4 cups
  1. 5 pounds medium eggplants
  2. 1/2 medium red onion, minced
  3. 2 medium garlic cloves, crushed to a paste
  4. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, plus more if needed
  5. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  6. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  7. 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  8. 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  9. Salt and freshly ground white pepper
  10. 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  11. Toasted peasant bread, for serving
  1. Light a grill or preheat the broiler. Grill or broil the eggplants about 8 inches from the heat for about 30 minutes, turning occasionally, until charred all over and softened. Let cool slightly, then peel the eggplants, keeping them as intact as possible. Transfer the eggplants to a colander set over a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let drain in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight.
