Eggplant Dip (Paleo)

Once again, I apologize for my lack of posting. With school around the corner (as in, tomorrow), my mind has been preoccupied. Not to mention, I’m still without my computer. Which has made sending out emails, printing out HW, and completing my online class a pain in the butt. I’m practically living at my mother’s house now to have access to a computer. And this is not a Generation Y person complaining about foregoing beloved technology (heck, I’d love to ditch my phone for a few weeks). This is someone being forced to use technology to graduate. I wish blackboards and sent-home notes were still all the rage.

Anyway, what is all the rage right now? (Yes, I know, corny transition). Eggplant!!!! My favorite way to eat it? Roasted! And giving it a blend in the ol’ food processor afterwards? A yummy and fluffy dip/side dish!

Eggplant Dip (Paleo)

Eggplant Dip (Paleo)

Ingredients:   

1 medium-large eggplant

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 garlic cloves, chopped

1 tsp salt

pepper, to taste

Directions: 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Pierce the eggplant multiple times with a knife, place on a baking tray, and roast in the oven for 45 minutes. Afterwards, sit eggplant out for 10-15 minutes to cool. Crack eggplant open with a knife and spoon insides out and into a food processor (discard the peels or set them aside to eat). Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and blend until all the ingredients come together. Serve hot or cold. I either dip veggies in this or just scoop it into my mouth with a spoon 🙂

  1. A great foolproof recipe – you could try adding a little ground cumin also…..

  2. I really have no idea what to do with eggplant, except for breading it and frying it which I can no longer have. I just got 2 eggplants in my CSA this week. I think I absolutely have to try this out. Thanks!

    • Great!!! I used to only fry eggplant too, but I got tired of hot oil landing on me! Now I just grill or place it in the oven. Much better tasting in my opinion 🙂 Enjoy!
