Eggplant Caviar with Currants and Roasted Red Pepper

eggplant caviar 2 Luxe PD

This fabulous appetizer or main, dish in my case, was a real find at Luxe in the Detroit Corridor on Cleveland’s West side.

Chef Marlin Kaplan creates a creamy texture and full bodied flavor with rich roasted peppers and sweet juicy currants.

I am a big fan of Chef Marlin and I am happy to see the vegetarian offerings at Luxe.

Hob Nob Pinot Noir was a great compliment to the sweet and savory flavors of this humble but, oh so yummy, dish!

Serve with pita or in Bib lettuce, radicchio, or in endive.
