Smoked Eggplant Hummus Recipe

Who doesn’t cherish a decent smooth hummus? What’s more, best of all a dish is so fast, simple and modest to make that there is definitely a compelling reason need to purchase any of the shop-purchased stuff. However long you adhere to the fundamental elements of chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, water, and lemon juice to make your base, what you then flavor your hummus with is completely dependent upon you.

I’ll be sharing a portion of my hummus recipes with you throughout the following couple of weeks and I needed to throw it out with a tasty Moroccan-roused smoked aubergine hummus. Magnificently fragrant, and with a slightly smoky kick from the smoked paprika (my outright favorite fixing right now!) it goes all around well with warmed pitta bread, couscous, and barbecued meats or vegetables.

What’s In It?

  • 1 small Aubergine
  • 200g tinned Chickpeas
  • 100ml Water
  • 2 cloves of Garlic
  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Tahini
  • Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
  • 1 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tbsp Pomegranate Seeds to garnish
  • Salt and Pepper to season

How Do I Make It?
Preheat the broiler to 180ºC.

Begin by garnishing and following the aubergine and afterward cutting in half through and through. Take every half and cut these into three cuts, so you end up with 6 cuts of aubergine around 1cm thick.

Brush every aubergine cut with olive oil and afterward rub with garlic, salt, and pepper on the two sides. Sprinkle with 1 tsp of smoked paprika.

Spread the aubergine out on a baking sheet and spot the garlic cloves around them.

Cook for roughly 20 minutes. You believe they should go all quite delicate and soft, so try to look at them and get them before they begin to freshen up.

Channel and wash the chickpeas and afterward utilize either a hand blender or food processor rush along with 1 tbsp of olive oil, the tahini, water, lemon juice, and then simmered aubergine and garlic.

Serve showered with olive oil, a tidying of smoked paprika, and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds.
