Hi guys,

I decided that it is a time for another easy to make and delicious appetizer.

My dear friend Julia suggested that it would be a great idea to try to make those Grilled Eggplant and cover them with a delicious home made hummus spread! I agreed with her idea, and once again I invited myself over to her house for cooking and eating party 🙂

Grilled Eggplant:

Ingredients:

  1. Eggplant – 1 large
  2. Avocado Oil  – 1/2 cup
  3. Salt – 1 tea spoon

Directions:

Slice the Eggplant to about 1/4 inch slices and place them on a large tray. Cover it with a pinch of salt and let stay aside for couple minutes to take away the bitter flavor from the Eggplant.

Take a paper towel and tap on each Eggplant to remove the excess liquid and the salt on the Eggplant.

Take a peace of Eggplant and brush it with avocado oil and grill it for 2 minutes. While it is frying, brush with avocado oil on the top and flip the Eggplant and fry it for another 2 minutes.

Hummus:

Ingredients:

  1. Garbanzo Beans – 1 1/2 cups cooked
  2. Water – 1/4 cup
  3. Lemon – juice of half lemon
  4. Tahini Paste – 2 table spoons
  5. Extra Virgin Olive Oil – 1 table spoon
  6. Garlic – 1 clove
  7. Salt – 1/2 tea spoon salt

Direction:

Put all of the ingredients in the Food Processor or Blender and blend it all until the hummus is very smooth. ( about 2-3 minutes).

 

Enjoy this simple and healthy appetizer, and come back for more soon.
