Eggplant has not been one of my family favourites and when I received it in our vege box, I’ve always left it to the last to eat. Google has been a tremendous help for ideas on how to cook the ol’ eggplant and I have a couple of eggplant recipes if you are in need. My eggplant parmigiana is delicious as well as my stuffed moroccan eggplants which is in my 2015 ThermoFun club members book. When I saw the title for this recipe I was intrigued – what would a roasted eggplant taste like as a dip! So I got to work and here is my thermomix roasted eggplant dip!
Eggplant can be a challenge to photograph nicely, but the flavour is spot on! Enough that a few fussy eaters even asked for it again! 🙂
Another bonus for this recipe with the oven on, it will warm the house up and you can roast some extra garlic for future recipes.
