Eggplant is known for those that are concerned with home remedies to treat arthritis. Eggplant is used in many areas of the world-especially the Mediterranean- in a famous recipe called Moussaka.
Greek Moussaka uses ground beef or lamb, and this may aggravate gout pain.
In today's recipe, meat is not used at all, so having another advantage, ie it can be used by vegetarians.
* 5-6 medium Globe eggplants (about 5-6 pounds)
* sea salt
* olive oil
* 4 medium onions, chopped
* 3 cups of chopped ripe tomatoes with juice (or canned tomatoes)
* 1 garlic pulp, all cloves intact
* 1 or 2 tablespoon of pine nuts
* 1/2 teaspoon pepper
* 3-4 whole cloves
* 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
* 1/8 teaspoon of ground allspice
* 2 bay leaves
* 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
* 3 tablespoons of tomato paste
* 1 chicken cube (4g) (vegetarians have to manage for the taste)
* 1.5-2 cups of water
1. Wash eggplants and trim off stems.
2. Cut off 1/2-inch wide strips of the skin lengthwise, leaving about an inch in between, all around the eggplant, then cut eggplant lengthwise into 1/2-inch slices.
3. Put slices in a large bowl or on a tray, sprinkle liberally with salt and let them sit for 30 minutes. Salting removes any bitterness and absorbs some of the natural liquids.
4. Rinse well, drain, and pat dry. Brush slices lightly on both sides with olive oil and run them under the broiler on an un-greased cookie sheet until lightly browned and soft. Remove and set aside to cool.
5. Preheat the frying pan or skillet over low heat.
When the pan is hot, add 2 tablespoons of oil and increase the heat to medium low. Sauté the interviews with a wooden spoon, until comments are translucent. Add tomatoes, pine nuts, salt (consider salt content of the cubes), pepper, garlic, cinnamon, bay leaves, allspice, vinegar, and tomato paste, and mix well.
6. When dry, remove the bay leaves and cinnamon stick (if used).
7. Add the chicken cube to the water for about 10 minutes to make froth.
8. Add the froth to the eggplant and the sauce mixture, then leave over a medium heat until it acquires some thick consistency.
9. Put it down and allow to cool for 20-30 minutes. Moussaka is traditionally eat warm, not hot, and can also be eaten at room temperature.
-It can be completely cooked and cooled, then frozen and reheated.
With toast it can be eaten as snacks. Eat it once at least every day and enjoy a delicious taste as well as arthritis pain relief.
