Roasted Eggplant Dip

With summer comes entertaining. Whether you have family visiting for the weekend, are hosting the neighborhood potluck, or inviting friends over for happy hour, there’s no shortage of get-togethers this time of year.

Roasted Eggplant Dip

While it’s tempting to pick up everything you need at the store (including ready-made dips), your guests will appreciate the extra effort and fresh ingredients that come along with homemade appetizers.

Roasted Eggplant Dip

This eggplant dip comes together in no time in your food processor and is a great vegetarian appetizer option. Serve it with pita bread or naan and seasonal veggies for easy dipping, or use it as a spread on sandwiches or wraps instead of the usual mayo and mustard (It would be delicious on this portobello mushroom sandwich).

Roasted Eggplant Dip

First, roast one large eggplant. After it cools, put the roasted eggplant pieces, onion, garlic, green onion, lemon juice, and tahini in your Hamilton Beach® food processor fitted with the chopping/mixing blade. Process the ingredients for about 1 minute, until the dip is smooth. Transfer to a bowl and garnish with a little extra olive oil and green onion or chives before serving.
