Whether you need a quick party appetizer or a healthy snack, this Roasted Eggplant Dip recipe is the perfect option. Roasted eggplant is the star of this 6-ingredient dip as it provides the spread with a sweet and caramelized flavor. This veg is blended with garlic, tahini (sesame paste), lemon juice and other ingredients to create a thick and flavorful dip. It’s great to serve with pita chips or sliced vegetables as these dippers have a crunchy texture that pairs well with the smooth dip. From start to finish, this dip comes together in an hour — and contains 100 calories per serving!

Tahini gives this dip its creamy consistency. However, if you don’t have it on hand a plain nut butter like cashew or will work fine. Do you make homemade dip often? Tell us in the comments below!
