    Eggplant usually isn’t my jam. I’m not sure why. I want to like it and I give things like Eggplant Parm a try every so often just to make sure, but no dice. No dice until I found Roasted Eggplant Dip!

    I’ve cooked eggplant all ways: fried, roasted, breaded; I could go on and on. Then the moment happened when I ordered and enjoyed a garlicky eggplant spread from a Mediterranean restaurant.

    Served on whole wheat flatbread, I was excited I finally found an eggplant recipe I really liked: Roasted Eggplant Dip.

    Now the challenge was to recreate the recipe. I was able to get many of the ingredients out of the server, so it actually wasn’t that difficult.

    However, I did add roasted Hatch chile peppers to add a little more dimension and interest to the dip. You can used homemade roasted chile or canned peppers.

    You can leave out the chiles if you aren’t a huge fan of that extra little kick. It’s honestly good with or without them but I always like to spice up my recipes in some way.

    What can I say, I like that to turn up the heat every chance I get and the chiles add that to this recipe.

    So far I’ve made it several times as a party appetizer and it always goes super fast. Sometimes I use the leftovers on grilled chicken marinated in Italian dressing or even smothered over burritos or enchiladas!
