Note from the Diva
Eggplant gets kind of mushed up as it cooks in the hobo pack, which actually turns out to be a good quality, particularly if it’s getting mushed up with tomatoes and garlic. In this dish, the lemons soften, turn a little brown, and give off some aromatic flavor, as well as acting as a heat shield of sorts for the other ingredients.


List of Ingredients
2 lemons, sliced into thin rounds
2 small eggplants, cut lengthwise into quarters
4 plum tomatoes, halved
2 heads garlic, halved horizontally
7 large sprigs fresh oregano or rosemary
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste

Preparation
1. Lay out two sheets of heavy-duty foil, each about 2 feet long, one on top of the other.

Place the lemon slices in the center, then put the eggplant quarters on top. Follow with the tomatoes and garlic, add the herbs, and drizzle with the olive oil. Lay a third length of heavy-duty foil over the top. Fold the edges of the sheets together on all sides, closing the pack, then roll them up until they bump into the food, forming a ridge around its perimeter. Place the pack right side up in the center of a fourth length of foil and fold the four sides over the top of the packet, one after another.

2. Now the package is ready for the coals. The fire should have passed its peak of intensity and be dying down, so that it consists primarily of glowing coals covered with a thin film of gray ash but very few flickering flames ­ in other words, you want a medium to low dying fire. Clear a place for the foil packet, leaving a thin layer of coals. Place the packet on the cleared area and heap up coals all around, but not directly on top.


3. Remove from the coals, unroll the foil, and serve at once.

Cooking Time & Temperature
Cook, keeping watch and shifting the packet as needed so it is continuously in contact with glowing coals, for 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the intensity of the coals.

Number of Servings: Serves 4 to 6 as a side dish
