Delicious aubergine dip

Delicious aubergine dip low carb

Roasted aubergines are the most divine of vegetables. This dip will rival anything you can make with chickpeas in terms of flavour and texture.

There are several classic recipes which make the most of this core ingredient, the most popular is probably baba ganoush which makes use of tahini paste (a sesame seed paste) in the same way as a chickpea houmous. Pesto makes a lovely addition, too, for more of a mediterranean flavour. This version is a bit more far east/fusion and tastes all the better for it 🙂 I’ve used a teaspoon of Fragrant Thai Base, containing basil, chilli, lemon grass and galangal.
