  • 1
    Heat oven to 400º. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Place eggplant on cookie sheet; pierce several times with fork. Wrap garlic in aluminum foil; place on cookie sheet with eggplant. Bake about 30 minutes or until garlic is tender; remove garlic from oven. Continue baking eggplant about 45 minutes longer or until blackened and collapsed. Let stand until cool enough to handle.
  • 2
    Cut eggplant in half. Scrape out pulp onto chopping board; discard skin. Squeeze roasted garlic out of skins onto eggplant. Coarsely chop eggplant with garlic; place in medium glass or plastic bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients until well blended. Serve at room temperature, or cover and refrigerate until chilled.

Expert Tips

  • Look for smaller eggplants as they generally have fewer seeds and a smoother flavor. Roasting the garlic gives it a milder, sweeter taste that blends well with the other seasonings. It's good on low-fat crackers.
