I have had this at my aunt’s house many a time, and I simply love it. I managed to extract the ‘secret family recipe’ from her, and here it is in all it’s simple glory. You will love this – it’s just so Mediterranean and flavoursome, and goes well with fresh Mediterranean bread and crudités, and a glass of chilled white wine. A great summer treat, and so easy to make too !
1 steamed eggplant (aubergine), cut in half, and steam in its skin until soft
2 to 3 cloves garlic
a handful of fresh parsley
2 to 3 Tbsp (30-45mL) balsamic vinegar – more, if you prefer
a few drops of olive oil
salt to taste
black pepper corns
a few drops of lemon juice
- Place the parsley in your food processor, and process until finely chopped.
- Add in your eggplant, with the remaining ingredients, and process until smooth.
- Spoon into a serving bowl (the one in the pic is from Ceramika Maltija), and refrigerate for a few hours. Enjoy !
