the best Eggplant Dip with Onion (pasta de beringela & cebola caramelizada)

2016-07-11 19.47.19-1.jpgI discovered the Persian Eggplant dip some years ago and it still is one my favourites :)💛 I hope you enjoy it as much as me.

  • 1 large eggplant, cut into 1/2 cm rounds (skin on)
  • 1 large onion (any kind – I used purple)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt + ground pepper to taste
  • pinch ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp Tahini

Preheat oven to 200ºC, arrange the eggplant rounds on a baking grid and roast for 5-10 minutes, turning once until  the eggplant is soft and golden brown.

In a wok put some olive oil (2-3tbsp) add the onion and stir until they are soft and caramelized (low heat). Add the minced garlic at the end and season with salt and pepper and a pinch of ground cumin.

Remove  the eggplant from the oven and let cool slightly, (peel off and discard the skin if you prefer). With a fork  mash the eggplant and mix with the onions and tahini.

Eat this great dip with bread, veggies, crips, crackers , etc.

PT:  Pasta de berinjela.. Espero que gostem tanto como eu 🙂 💛 

  • 1 beringela grande, cortada em rodelas de 1/2 cm (com pele)
  • 1 cebola grande (qualquer tipo – usei roxa)
  • 4 dentes de alho picados
  • Azeite
  • sal e pimenta a gosto
  • 1 pitada de cominhos em pó
  • 2 c. sopa de Tahine

Preaquecer o forno a 200ºC organizar as rodelas de beringela numa grelha de ir ao forno e assar por 5-10 minutos, virando uma vez até que a beringela esteja macia e dourada.

Num wok colocar um pouco de azeite (2-3 c. sopa) adicionar a cebola e ir mexendo até que fiquem caramelizadas (lume brando). Adicionar o alho picado no final e temperar com sal, pimenta e uma pitada de cominhos em pó.
Retirar a beringela do forno e deixe arrefecer (retira a pele é opcional). Com um garfo esmagar a beringela e misturar com a cebola e o tahin.

Comer com pão, legumes, batatas fritas, tostas, etc.
