Eggplant dip

Eggplant dip

An all time favorite, this eggplant dip is great for summertime grilling parties or winter Holiday parties or just to have on an weekday night. Inspired by Eastern European cuisine, the eggplants have a slightly smoked flavor due to being roasted on the grill. That is the secret to the distinctive flavor: roasting the eggplants on open fire or the grill. This dip is easy to make and requires only three ingredients: eggplant, onion, avocado oil or avocado mayo. That is all.

Step 1: Roast the eggplants on the grill. First poke the raw eggplants with a fork to make sure they won't burst due to heat accumulating inside. This is very important. Roast on each side until the skin becomes burnt and crusty like charcoal.

Step 2: Once thoroughly cooked on the grill (all sides look like charcoal) remove from the grill and let cool. Peel off the burnt skin and let the meat of the eggplant sit for about 10-15 minutes to let its juice out. This is very important to allow the juice to come out because it will be bitter otherwise.

Step 3: Add the meat of the eggplant to the blender. Add cut up onions. 2 eggplants require about one third of a yellow onion.
