I haven't spent much time in the kitchen lately as every spare second has been spent with this little cutie. She's a maine coon in case you were wondering.
Sadly she's not mine, she belongs to one of my sisters - so I've been heading over there every chance I can for my kitten fix!
ok, so tearing myself away from the kitten for a minute, here is this week's recipe. I have to admit, I don't usually make my own dips. I buy organic houmuss (how do you spell that word?....) sometimes mash up an avocado with some lemon juice & black pepper & that's about it! - but when I found myself in possession of three aubergines (as you do) , I felt inspired to come up with some kind of aubergine dip - & here it is.
3 medium sized Aubergines
1 heaped tablespoon tahini
2 tablespoons olive oil
juice of half a lemon
2 cloves of garlic
1 heaped tablespoon sundried tomato paste (You can use regular tomato paste)
fresh coriander (1 big handful, or 2 tablespoons - hard to measure fresh herbs!)
salt and pepper to taste.
preheat the oven to 200c
place the aubergines on a baking tray. pierce them quite deeply with a knife (this prevents the risk of them exploding in the oven)
bake for about 50 mins. They should look like this........
taste! - you may want to add more salt, pepper, or lemon.....etc. make it your own.
that's it - super easy, super delicious and full of healthy ingredients!
