Hi, how are you today? Today I am sharing an Aubergine Dip / Spread that can be put onto some bruschetta or eaten with some savoury biscuits.
This Aubergine Dip / Spread is a yummy change from your normal dips/ spreads that one tends to serve as a starter or a little nibble. It is not difficult to make! Maybe just a little time in needed to get the aubergine lovely and soft. The aubergine could be roasted in the oven if you preferred, however I find it easier and quicker to do on the stove.
Make sure that the aubergines are cooked through, as when they are not cooked enough they have a rubbery texture… and in my opinion are really not very appetizing then. What do you think of aubergines that are not cooked enough?
Let me know what you think of this Aubergine Dip / Spread and how it worked out for you 🙂
Today the weather seems to be cooler here…YAY. We actually had a little rain this morning, which of course make me very happy and they garden was very thankful too 🙂
Have you got something planned for this weekend? I’m not too sure what we will get up to but I somehow think that we will be taking it easy.
I hope you enjoy xx
