Babaganouj Soup

This was absolutely sublime. First roast an eggplant over an open flame until it is entirely charred on the outside. Put in a big paper bag and let cool. Then pick off the charred skin. Chop the cooked eggplant into small pieces and dehydrate. You will have about a tablespoon or two of roasted eggplant powder. Add an equal amount of flour and enough egg to make a firm noodle. Roll out as thin as possible and cut into ribbons.

Then make a simple fish stock with chardonnay and saffron. Cook the noodles in the stock. Throw in a handful of smoked scallops. Drizzle over some tahini sauce (tahini paste and yogurt, though I actually used chevre and milk, I was out of yogurt). Then sprinkle with zaatar. This serves one person.
