Chia seeds make a great dip and this eggplant dip is flavoured with cajun spices.
I’ve been playing around with “Cajun” spices and discovered that they go very well with eggplant. So thought I’d make a dip and throw in some chia seeds too!
I peeled the skin as just lately the eggplants that I get from my vegetable market have had bitter skins. Plus I don’t think that the skins have any place in a dip! I’ve been enjoying this dip with some flaxseed crackers but it would be great as a sandwich spread too. Or with some crudities.
I just loved the smokey spices of this dip. The chia seeds give this a slight crunch too. Eggplants soak up oil like a sponge so you may want to add more than suggested in the ingredients below.
I’ve finally succumbed and stopped calling this vegetable aubergines and now call them eggplant! I seem to be losing my “Britishness” whilst living abroad!
