Middle Eastern Eggplant Spread

Middle Eastern Eggplant Spread

I love eggplant, but most of the year I can’t have it for various reasons (too expensive, too out-of-season/icky-looking). It’s been in season for a little while, finally showing up at my local farmer’s market where I scored a lovely, large specimen for less than a dollar.

After looking around, I decided on a recipe called “Middle Eastern Eggplant Spread” that sounded interesting. It’s from a book I checked out a little while ago from the library called The Roasted Vegetable by Andrea Chesman. Middle Eastern Eggplant Spread

Strange-Flavor Eggplant Dip

This dip is spicy, sweet and tart. It’s easy to make and satisfying. I don’t make it often because I’m liable to take my bowl of dip, a bunch of chopped up pita triangles and eat the entire bowl all by myself. (Although, considering one eggplant is little more than 100 calories, the dip is not so much the problem as the pita!) It is best the next day at room temperature, once the flavors have a chance to blend.This dip is spicy, sweet and tart. It’s easy to make and satisfying.
