mediterranean goodness I tried this recipe yesterday. It was easy and the final result was rewarding. It was a refreshing new way to use eggplant as well. I followed the recipe as is only omitted ingredients that I did not have at hand ( cayenne pepper chile pepper); I used a little chili powder to get the missing kick. It worked. Thank you for this great recipe!
Great Flavor Made this recipe for Christmas appetizers (or lunch.) It was delicious. Rarely use eggplant in my cooking but this recipe changed my mind. I served this dip on whole wheat flat bread and even my teenagers ate it. Pros: Lots of flavor easy to make
Loved by an eggplant hater omgomgomg. I am not an eggplant person. I kept trying recipes because I'd get so many eggplants in my CSA box each week but I thought I'd give this a shot. SO YUMMY. I might eat an entire box of pita chips in one sitting because of it. So good.
My favorite recipe from EW so far.... This is a family favorite. We really enjoy the fresh tangy taste of this spread. This past summer when eggplants were cheap and abundant I roasted up several extra pounds smashed it up with the lemon juice called for and then froze it in several containers hoping I could make this in the dead of winter. Well it worked fabulously. Once defrosted I added the olive oil and other ingredients--superb! Next summer I'll freeze even more for winter/spring enjoyment!
Yummy! We thought this was a great dip/filling! It makes our condo toasty if we use the oven in the summer so instead of roasting the eggplant we grilled it. We just stabbed fork holes into the whole eggplant spritzed with oil threw it on the grill while we made dinner one night and then (after cooled) skinned it into the lemon and oil and left it in the fridge to finish the next day for lunch. Only other change we made was to use local goat cheese feta from the farmer's market and we ate as filling on toasted flour tortillas. We'll definitely make it again! Thanks! Pros: Easy
