  • Yield: 1 serving ( Serving Size: 1.5 cups )


  • 1 Eggplant (1.5 lbs)
  • 8 kalamata olives pitted

  • 2 garlic cloves halved
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) black pepper freshly ground

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Cut the eggplant in half lengthwise. Place cut side up on baking sheet and spray cut surfaces with non-stick cooking spray. Bake for 40 minutes until easily pierced with form. Remove from oven and cool until safe to handle.

Peel eggplant and discard skin. Place peeled eggplant in colander or strainer and press out any excess liquid.

Put pressed eggplant in blender or food processor. Add all the remaining ingredients and blend to desired consistency.
