There are so many reasons to make this eggplant spread. It is extremely easy to make, is healthy and tastes amazing! In addition to those reasons, it is very versatile and can be paired with bread, pita chips, tortillas, crackers or veggies. Also known as Baba Ganoush, eggplant spread originated in the Mediterranean and has become a classic (and for good reason!). A whole eggplant is roasted with garlic and olive oil then blended with a mixture of herbs and spices. That's it! But don't let the simplicity fool you, there are many layers of flavor within this spread.
-If you would like to make the eggplant spread ahead of time, store it with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the dip to prevent browning. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
-Add a touch of cumin powder or a tablespoon of lemon juice to give this dip even more flavor.
