This roasted eggplant and feta dip gets a kick from a fresh chile pepper and cayenne pepper. There are countless variations on this classic meze (appetizer) in Greece. Out-of-season eggplant or eggplant that has been heavily watered often has an abundance of seeds, which make the vegetable bitter. Be sure to taste the dip before you serve it; if it's a touch bitter, you can remedy that with a little sugar. Serve with toasted pita crisps or as a sandwich spread.

"I made this and used it as a topping for chicken breasts - spooning the dip over the raw chicken breasts and baking for 30 minutes at 350 - it was AMAZING! "

I personally love eggplant and was disappointed by this recipe enough to write a review on it, while I think it taste like semi salsa that is about all I can say the red pepper over powered the eggplant so much so you didn't even taste it and it even went over the feta. I ended up adding more feta & some other cheese to try to get more then one note out of it.


The recipe was simple to make. I enjoyed the Greek taste. It tasted wonderful! Thanks for the recipe!


This was delicious! Went very well with some homemade tortilla chips. The cayenne pepper adds quite a kick, but it was delicious!


This recipe is GREAT! I made it last weekend, and my daughter and her friends (all 12, 13 & 14 years old) raided the fridge and ate every last bit during the night! Big winner in our house.


I took this to two parties last weekend and it was a huge hit!
