This looks great - I'm going to just give it five stars before trying it - because drizzling the eggplant with oil before baking makes total sense and that alone is worth two stars. Three stars for the Moroccan spice touch. /// To make removal of eggplant flesh easier, use a curved, serrated grapefruit knife. Here are the Morrocan spice mixes posted on this site by other users, for quick reference: (1) 5 teaspoons ground nutmeg 5 teaspoons ground cumin 5 teaspoons ground coriander 2 1/2 teaspoons allspice 2 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger 1 1/4 teaspoons cayenne pepper 1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon Directions Mix spices together and store in an airtight container.

My very first Moroccan dish and I enjoyed it very much, probably because many of the ingredients are what I love to cook with. However, I do not know what moroccan seasoning is and didn't have any, so I don't know how that affected the flavor of the dish. I did serve it with the tomato cucumber salad which also was very good. Thanks so much for posting.
