Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cut eggplant lengthwise, prick skins with fork, brush with olive oil and place cut sides down on a baking sheet. Bake in 375F oven for 25 min, or until soft. Cool eggplants slightly and remove skins.
  • Meanwhile, cook chopped onion in a skillet with about 2 tbsp. oil on med. heat until lightly golden.
  • Add chopped peppers to the onions and cook 5 more minutes.
  • Puree the chopped tomatoes in a food processor and add to the onion and pepper mixture. Cook and stir another 5 min.
  • Mash the eggplants with the fork or grind in the food processor. Add the mashed eggplants to the skillet and simmer another 7 min.
  • Press the garlic through the garlic press . Stir in to the skillet. Add chopped basil and chopped parsely leaves. Add 1/2 tsp. sugar, salt and pepper to taste and cook 5 more min.
  • Turn off the heat and stir in the mayo. This dip is equally good warm or cold. I sometimes just serve it as an entree over rice. The amount of servings would in that case go down to 5.

    Thanks, Goblue for a suggestion. You can definitely grill the eggplant, instead of baking it.

    Hey Juels,
    This Sounds Really Good. Gotta Give This A Try. Waddaya Think 'bout Grilling The Eggplant First To Get A Tasty Char?
