Yield
2 cups (serving size: 1 tablespoon dip and 1 pita wedge)

This dip is similar in flavor to baba ganoush, a Middle Eastern, roasted eggplant dish. In Turkey, it's often served with a salad of chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, and fresh parsley.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Pierce eggplant several times with a fork; place eggplant and shallots on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until tender; cool slightly, and peel.

Step 3

Place eggplant, shallots, yogurt, juice, and oil in a food processor; process until almost smooth. Add chives, salt, and pepper; process just until blended. Spoon dip into a bowl; garnish with lemon wedges, and serve with pita wedges. Sprinkle with paprika, if desired.
