Moroccan Eggplant Rolls Stuffed With Cilantro-Lemongrass Chickpea Spread with Roasted Red Pepper and Sweet Chili Sauce

cilantro-lemongrass chickpea spread stuffed eggplant rolls with roasted red pepper and sweet chili sauce

When our friend Chelsea came to visit and told us she was on a very specific diet – no oils, no grains, and no sugars, among other rules – I took it as a challenge. The eggplant rolls are inspired by something I’d seen at Granville Island Public Market. The eggplant is marinated and then lightly roasted. Inside is a chickpea spread delicately flavoured with fresh cilantro and lemongrass, and I made a sugar-free sweet chili sauce from scratch.
