Mellow roasted garlic sets this version of the popular Middle Eastern eggplant dip apart from standard recipes. Roasting the onion and tomato alongside the eggplant also adds an extra dimension of flavor. Serve with sliced raw vegetables, crackers or pita bread.
Crowd favorite! Best at room temperature after coming together overnight!!
This eggplant dip is always a favorite at every party served with pita chips or pita bread. It works great alongside a dish of homemade hummus and some raw veggies as well. As mentioned, please make ahead and then let the dish come to room temperature before serving. Also mince the mint well, as the 'hardiness' of the mint can feel odd on the tongue if left in large pieces.
Healthy, unique, and it includes roasted garlic which is always a bonus!
I made this on a whim since I have all this eggplant and no game plan. I vaguely remembered reading about making roasted eggplant dips so I went ahead and googled a possible recipe. I found this recipe and went ahead and tried it out. It was great! The only change I would make is pulsing it in the mixer a few times after all the ingredients have been mixed.
