Eggplant Caviar

Even an eggplant-hater liked this one!  Plus it is super simple to make.  Winner!

  • 1 lb. eggplant, unpeeled
  • 2 garlic cloves, or garlic scapes, minced
  • 2-4 TBLS plain yogurt
  • 2 TBLS lemon juice, or to taste
  • 2 TBLS fresh mint, minced (or substitute other fresh herb here)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Roast eggplants whole in 400 degree oven until flesh is tender when you stick a fork in.  Remove and cool.  Mash or blend all the rest of the ingredients until smooth.  Store in fridge and use as a dip or spread.
