Roast the eggplant
- Remove the stem from the eggplant; cut the eggplant in half lengthwise. Lightly brush the cut side of each half with 1½ teaspoons oil and season with salt and pepper.
While the oven heats and the eggplant roasts, make the lamb filling.
Prep and cook the lamb filling
- Peel and coarsely chop the onion.
- Cut a small corner from the ground lamb packages and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
- Cut away the core from the tomatoes; coarsely chop the tomatoes.
- Coarsely chop the pistachios.
While the filling cooks, prepare the lemon-yogurt sauce and the parsley salad.
Make the yogurt sauce and parsley salad
- Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate. [Zest and juice 1 lemon; save the remaining lemon.] The zest will be divided between the yogurt sauce and the salad.
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems.
In another small bowl, stir together the parsley leaves, remaining lemon zest, and ½ teaspoon [1 tsp] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Brush the eggplant with oil.
- Juice the lemon.
- Strip the parsley leaves.
- Stir the yogurt sauce.
