Eggplant is the star of this modern interpretation of a vegetable terrine. Honey Harissa Sauce adds vibrant color and bold flavor.


1 large red bell pepper, roasted, peeled and seeded

3 Tbs olive oil

1 Tbs honey

1/2 tsp McCormick® Caraway Seed

1/2 tsp

1/2 tsp minced garlic

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp McCormick® Red Pepper Crushed

1 eggplant

2 Tbs olive oil

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp McCormick® Black Pepper Ground

1 small red bell pepper, roasted, peeled and quartered

2 oz goat cheese (chévre)

1 small yellow bell pepper, roasted, peeled and quartered

2 Tbs honey


For the Honey Harissa Sauce, place all ingredients in blender or food processor; cover. Blend or process on high speed until almost smooth. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Brush eggplant slices with oil. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Place eggplant slices in single layer on baking pan. Roast 15 to 20 minutes or until just tender.

Line four (6-ounce) ramekins with plastic wrap. Place 1 slice of eggplant lengthwise along bottom of each ramekin. Line the sides of the ramekin with slices of eggplant, draping 1 inch of each end of the eggplant slice over top of ramekin. Place red bell pepper slices on top of eggplant in bottom of ramekin. Top with a thin layer of goat cheese. Repeat with a layer of eggplant, placing slices crosswise to first layer of eggplant, yellow bell pepper slices and goat cheese. Fold excess eggplant over to enclose the torte. Cover ramekins in plastic wrap.

Refrigerate 1 hour or overnight. Invert each ramekin onto serving plate and carefully remove ramekin. Brush tortes with honey. Serve with Honey Harissa Sauce.
