Most ambitious thing I've ever cooked - most ingredients, too (and this isn't all of them - squash, apricots, chickpeas, preserved lemon, harissa and cilantro are yet to come). Blame Yotam Ottolenghi, or rather, thank him! The final product is orange but the flavors are a riot of color. These roasted eggplant with buttermilk sauce, za'atar and pomegranates are Ottolenghi, too, and, unlike the "Ultimate winter couscous" above, not seasonal at all. I usually try too cook seasonal but made an exception because we were celebrating - one of our number is heading off in a few months for a new life in Australia, where it is late summer!
