The broccoli should still have snap and crunch after charring—this is a far cry from the mayo-based broccoli salad you may be thinking of.

Yield: 4 Servings
|1 medium eggplant, cut in half lengthwise|
|½ cup olive oil, divided, plus more for brushing|
|1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more|
|Freshly ground black pepper|
|2 bunches broccoli, florets separated from stems, stems peeled and shaved lengthwise on a mandoline|
|2 Fresno chiles, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced|
|1 tablespoon sugar|
|½ cup white wine vinegar|
|2 tablespoons coriander seeds|
|¼ cup seasoned rice vinegar|
|3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided|
|2 tablespoons malt vinegar|
|1 tablespoon agave nectar|
|1 tablespoon tahini|
|½ cup unsalted, roasted cashews, chopped|
|¼ cup cilantro leaves with tender stems|
|A spice mill or a mortar and pestle|
- Preheat oven to 350°. Brush eggplant on all sides with oil, season with salt and pepper, and roast, cut side down, on a rimmed baking sheet until lightly browned and softened, 30–40 minutes. Let cool.
- Meanwhile, heat a dry medium cast-iron skillet over high. Cook broccoli florets, tossing occasionally, until surfaces are blackened, 10–15 minutes. Transfer to a large plate; let cool.
- Toss chiles, sugar, and 1 tsp. salt in a small bowl. Let sit until juices release, 12–15 minutes. Add white wine vinegar.
- Meanwhile, toast coriander seeds in a dry small skillet, tossing often, until fragrant, about 4 minutes; let cool. Finely grind in a spice mill or with a mortar and pestle. Transfer to a small bowl and whisk in rice vinegar, ¼ cup oil, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, and 2 Tbsp. water; season vinaigrette with salt and pepper.
- Scoop eggplant flesh into a food processor; discard skin. Add malt vinegar, agave, tahini, and remaining 2 Tbsp. lemon juice. With motor running, stream in remaining ¼ cup oil; process until smooth. Season eggplant purée with salt and pepper.
- Toss charred broccoli, broccoli stems, and vinaigrette in a large bowl. Serve over eggplant purée topped with cashews, cilantro, and drained chiles.
