Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.  Line a small baking sheet with foil.  Using a fork or knife, prick holes all over the eggplant.  Roast the eggplant for 45-60 minutes or until the skin has browned and the eggplant is very soft.  Allow to cool
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, add the chickpeas and pulse a few times to break down.
  3. Remove the skin from the eggplant and add it along with the rest of the ingredients and process until very smooth.
  4. Serve with chips, pita bread, and/or fresh veggie
