Light Bites

Amazing Roasted Eggplant Dip

SERVES 2

4 eggplants
1 tablespoon of homemade mayonnaise*
salt

1. Roast the eggplants in the oven at 190 C (375 degrees F) for about 25-30 minutes or until they are very soft and you can poke them through with your finger. The skin will darken a little and they will begin to smell smoky, adding lots of flavor to the dip. Once they are done, cool them for about 12-15 minutes until easily handled.
2. Split the eggplants, drain excess liquid, and scrape out the flesh.
3. Mix the eggplant flesh in a blender. Afterwards, mix in with a spoon the homemade mayonnaise.
4. Serve this dip with crispy bread.

*Homemade Mayonnaise

1 egg yolk (at room temperature)
1/4 teaspoon of mustard (at room temperature)
around 150 ml of sunflower oil

1. Place the egg yolk in a bowl and stir it well together with the mustard.
2. Little by little begin adding the sunflower oil  and mixing really well until the oil is absorbed and the mixture turns into a paste.
3. Add more oil if you would like more mayonnaise. The quantity of oil depends on how much mayonnaise you want.

Enjoy!
