CIA Chef Scott Samuel prepares a Moroccan-spiced Scrambled Egg Tartine topped with Grilled Rosemary Eggplant, Spiced Lamb and Arugula.

Yield: 10 toasts

Ingredients for Scrambled Eggs

  • 5 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tbsp. cream
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp. butter

Method for Scrambled Eggs

  1. Combine the eggs, cream and salt in a small bowl and whisk until frothy and set aside. When ready to serve, heat the butter over medium heat in a small nonstick sauté pan. Add reserved eggs, and cook, folding eggs occasionally, until slightly cooked, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and keep warm.

Ingredients for Grilled Eggplant

  • 2 Italian eggplant
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. rosemary, minced
  • 2 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. Moroccan spice mix (recipe below)

Method for Grilled Eggplant

  1. Slice the stems off the eggplant, and then cut into long planks. Place in a bowl with the olive oil, rosemary, soy sauce and black pepper; toss to combine. Marinate for 30 minutes, and then grill over medium-high heat until nicely charred; make sure most of the moisture has cooked off, about 15 to 20 minutes. Cool completely and cut into ¼-inch dice; toss with Moroccan spice mix.

Ingredients for Spiced Lamb

  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, peeled, diced
  • 1/2 lb. ground lamb
  • 2 tsp. Moroccan spice mix
  • 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt

Method for Spiced Lamb

  1. In a medium nonstick sauté pan, add the oil, garlic and onion and sauté until caramelized. Add the lamb and the Moroccan spice mix and cook until browned, about 10 minutes; season with salt. Drain off some of the excess fat, set aside, and keep warm.

Ingredients for Moroccan Spice Mix

  • 10 g sweet paprika
  • 5 g ground fennel seed
  • 3 1/2 g ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 g ground coriander
  • 7 g salt
  • 3/4 g ground cinnamon
  • 1 g cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 g ground black pepper
  • 2 3/4 g sugar

Method for Moroccan Spice Mix

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

Ingredients for Assembly
