Ingredients
  

For the Carrots

  • 1 bunch carrots evenly sized (about 6)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil extra-virgin

For the Baba Ghanoush

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 medium eggplants
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tbsp olive oil extra-virgin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup parsley chopped
  • 2 tbsp thyme chopped

For the Beef

  • 2 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 12 oz beef rib eye

For the Garnish

  • olives mixed
  • sauerkraut or other fermented vegetables

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Arrange the carrots on a baking dish, drizzle with sea salt and olive oil, mix to coat evenly. Place in the oven and roast until they can be pierced with a knife, about 30-40 minutes depending on the size.
  • Place the eggplant on a separate baking dish. Drizzle with the oil and rub to coat evenly. Use a knife to pierce the eggplant all over which will keep the skin from expanding once it is in the oven. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until the eggplant is soft and deflated. Remove from the oven and let cool completely. Once cool enough to handle, peel away the skin and remove any clumps of seeds from the interior. Set aside the remaining pulp.
  • To make the Baba Ganoush, place the garlic in a food processor and pulse to mince. Add the eggplant and process until smooth. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides and then add in the salt, herbs, lemon, and tahini. Process again to incorporate fully to form a smooth puree. Transfer the puree into a glass container and set in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • To cook the beef, first toast the coriander seeds in a dry pan over medium heat. Shake the pan often to prevent burning. Once the seeds become aromatic, transfer to a mortar and pestle or spice grinder and grind fully. Add the ground coriander to a small bowl and mix in the paprika, salt, and lemon zest.
  • Heat a grill pan on medium-high heat or preheat the grill Coat the steak on both sides with the spice mixture. Place the steak in the pan and cook on one side for 3-4 minutes, then flip, and cook an additional 2-3 minutes. Remove the steak from the heat and set aside to rest for a few minutes before slicing into strips.
  • Divide the steak between two plates and serve with a few carrots, a big scoop of the Baba Ghanoush, olives, and a side of fermented vegetables.
