  • Eggplants (aubergines) — To remove any bitterness, sprinkle salt on the sliced eggplants and let them sit for 15 minutes before rinsing and using in the recipe.
  • Tomatoes — Use ripe and flavorful tomatoes for the best taste. If desired, you can blanch and peel the tomatoes before slicing.
  • Fresh parsley — Chop the parsley just before garnishing to maintain its vibrant color and fresh flavor.
