Dips & Sauces

Eggplant and Garlic Dip

Sharing is caring!

A creamy eggplant dip that is great with some crackers or breadsticks.  I used a low carb tortilla as a flat bread and dipped away like it was my last meal.

This recipe had been on my list of things to make for a while and I kick myself for not trying it earlier.  It was just delicious and the Chief Taster tucked into it which was a surprise when I mentioned “eggplant”.   

This would also be a great accompaniment to grilled fish or meat.  Serve it as a side the next time you have a bbq.  If you are not afraid of a bit of garlic, add another clove!

A tip for buying eggplants.  Select the lighter one.  The heavier they are, the more filled with seeds they are and that’s what makes them bitter. 

This makes a large bowl so would happily serve 4 people who are not afraid to dip!

    For non-dairy, substitute Tahina for yogurt.

    Looks lovely! I always make mine with tahini, so using yoghurt instead is a nice change 🙂
