Dips and I have become big friends. But not chips and dip, fresh vegetables and dip !  This Roasted Brinjal Dip is delicious served with fresh vegetables  { and chips ! - had to try it at least once ;-) }

This is an excellent addition to a party table and served as shown in the pics, it makes wonderful individual servings which your guests can carry around with them and munch on the go.

I like serving the dip in a small jar with some veggies tucked in already and some more veggies on the main serving table.

Therefore, everyone can go back and help themselves to more vegetables as well as chips, dipping biscuits and even cheese wedges.

I have also started to make double the recipe, scooped some dip into the jars and keep them chilled for up to a week. More than enough for my smaller meals in between the main meals.

ROASTED BRINJAL DIP

Serves 8 - 10

INGREDIENTS:

500g Brinjal, washed and dried {Eggplant/Aubergine}
4 t Garlic, crushed
1 Small Onion, finely chopped
1 TB Tahini Sauce
2 TB Olive Oil
1/2 cup Fat-Free Smooth Cottage Cheese
1/2 t Ground Cumin
1/2 t Paprika
Salt and Black Pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray an oven dish with cooking oil.
2.) Place the whole Brinjal in the oven dish - bake until soft and it looks like collapsing {this can take from 15 - 45 minutes - depending on the size of your Brinjal/s}
3.) Remove Brinjal from the oven - cool 5 minutes and then peel - chop the flesh finely {or lightly mash the flesh}.
4.) Mix the Brinjal with the remaining ingredients until smooth. A quick blitz in a food processor makes quick work of this.

Serve with an assortment of fresh baby vegetables, chips, dipping biscuits, rolled-up deli meats or cheese wedges.

  3. I think the presentation is just adorable. I never thought to have "carry around" dip containers, which guests can refill themselves. Brilliant!!
