Greek Eggplant Dip

Use this dip with your Thanksgiving leftovers as a sandwich spread.

  • Yield: 10


  • 2 none eggplants (about 3 lb. total)
  • 3 none cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 none tomatoes, cored and roughly chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • none Salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Cut a slit on 2 sides of each eggplant and place on baking sheet. Bake until eggplant is tender when pierced with a knife and skin is wrinkled.

When eggplants are cool enough to handle, cut in half lengthwise and scoop out pulp; discard skin. Place pulp in a blender with garlic, tomatoes, parsley, basil, olive oil and vinegar and blend at low speed until mostly smooth and thick. Season with salt and pepper.

Cover and refrigerate dip until ready to use. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve with pita wedges and sliced bell peppers, if desired.
