Ingredients

  • 2 medium eggplants washed and dry
  • 1/2 cup mayo or vaganaise for the vegan version
  • 8 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 cup ground walnuts
  • salt and pepper
  • cilantro

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Cover a baking pan with parchment paper, place eggplants on it and cook for 20 minutes on each side. Until eggplant is uniformly soft.
  • In the meantime, mince the garlic and grind the walnuts in a food processor. Place in a large bowl.
  • When the eggplants are baked, remove from oven and let cool at room temperature enough to be able to handle with your hands. Peel them and add the flesh to a bowl. The eggplant is very tender, so crush the flesh with a fork until fully combined. Add it to the garlic and walnut bowl.
  • Add the mayo to the bowl and using a spatula mix everything until combined. Add salt and pepper as preferred.
  • Serve as a dip or as a spread on crackers. Garnish with fresh cilantro.
