Eggplant Dip

Here is a recipe for a fast, easy and basically healthy dip. Well that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. I love to have this dip on my sandwiches, pizza, veggies and of course with chips.

Ingredients:

Eggplant

Onion

Garlic

Olive Oil

Paprika

Salt

Pepper


Directions:

Slice eggplant into rounds salt one side and let it rest for 10 minute.

Flip the rounds onto a paper towel and repeat the salting process on this side.

Flip and pat the eggplant dry.

Sauté the eggplant until just barely tender.

Sauté the onion until caramelized.

Add the garlic and cook it with the onion for the last few minutes.

Put everything into your food processor and pulse until it reaches a smooth, even, almost creamy consistency.

Add salt pepper and paprika to taste and pulse to combine.

Love eggplant! This is a way to enjoy this vegetable at the end of summer. Break out some good crisp bread and a good bottle of beer, This looks like it will be quite delicious!

This is sorta like baba ghanoush, as Grace said. I could eat a ton of this stuff with fresh veggies. Might have to get some eggplant this weekend...
