This is tasty, low fat and makes plenty as an appetizers portion. I have been making this recipe for years and love it. I have even made it for people that do not like eggplants and they were converted after trying this. Highly recommended.

I can't believe no one else has reviewed this. This is my go-to recipe for eggplant or for a low-calorie but tasty (and unique) offering at a party. I have probably made this at least 10 times. I make it as written, except when possible I use Thai basil, and using the food processor simplifies it even more. Often people who don't like eggplant like this dip, especially when they try it before they learn what it contains!
