This creamy eggplant dip recipe will surprise your guests for Thanksgiving or Christmas. You can also simply use it as an easy appetizer for your next party. It’s inspired by the authentic baba ganoush recipe, a healthy dairy-free dip.

It is a terrific combo of garlic, lemon, and roasted eggplant. This version is topped with extra superfood goodness, a combo of crunchy seeds, and goji berries. It’ll bring your next party food night to the next level of healthy.


How to make this Creamy Eggplant Dip

Don’t look any further, this eggplant dip is the one to try if you eat low-carb or dairy-free. It is super creamy and you won’t actually believe there’s no dairy in this recipe. The roasted eggplant combined with tahini paste and garlic had a delicious Mediterranean flavor to this dip. I chose to serve this dip with homemade seed crackers, carrot and celery sticks. roasted eggplant dip

You are probably wondering if this dip tastes like eggplant. Many people dislike eggplants and ask me this question when I serve it to my friends. So, the answer is: no, it doesn’t have the chewy texture that cooked eggplant usually has. It’s because you peel off the skin. Look at these beautifully roasted eggplants!

The taste is also very different because the eggplant flesh is roasted. It adds a grilled flavor that really improves the taste of the vegetable.

Plus it’s mixed with so many spices and ingredients that the resulting taste is simply like a deliciously fresh and creamy garlic & basil dip. It’s very difficult to spot eggplant in this roasted eggplant dip.

If you love dairy-free dips but you are not too sure about eggplant, I recommend you try my lightened up spinach dip. I don’t know about you but I can’t serve appetizers without tons of dips. Seriously, I am obsessed with dips of any kind.

  • Preheat an oven to 180°C (375°F).
  • Prick the eggplant with a fork in several places and slice in half lengthwise.
  • Place on a rack with the flesh facing down. Cover with foil and bake for 10-15 minutes until the skin blisters and the flesh softens.
  • Remove the foil, switch the oven to grill mode, and grill for 5-10 more minutes, turning frequently to grill both sides.
  • When baked, remove from the oven and transfer the eggplant to a chopping board or a plate
  • Let them cool a little. Using a spoon remove the soft flesh from the baked eggplant leaving the skin aside.
  • Place the eggplant flesh in a bowl of a food processor with the S blade attachment.
  • Add the garlic cloves, lemon juice, tahini paste, olive oil salt, cumin, and basil.
  • Process for 30 seconds to combine the ingredients and form a dip. Don't over-process the mixture to keep some bites of eggplants.
  • Taste and add more lemon juice or basil, if you like.
  • Transfer the mixture into a serving bowl and spread with the back of a spoon to form a shallow well.
  • Drizzle the olive oil over the top and sprinkle with sesame seeds, poppy seeds, and goji berries.
  • Store in the fridge for 2-3 hours before serving.
  • Serve cold.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
