Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First off, buy only shiny eggplants-dull ones are old.
  2. Cut off the stem ends of eggplants and prick them like you would a spud for baking.
  3. Place on the middle rack in oven and bake at 250 degrees for about 1 hour.
  4. They should look quite pooped out.
  5. Using mitts remove and cool to touch.
  6. Cut open and scoop out-toss the peel.
  7. Place in a food processor with all the ingredients except oil.
  8. Whirl away-until smooth.
  9. Taste and adjust-remember the pepper and garlic will get stronger.
  10. Place in a serving dish and cover with oil if not serving right away.
  11. Chill.
