Roasted Eggplant Dip
Eggplant is, in my humble opinion, an underutilized vegetable. Sure, eggplant parmesan is a popular dish, but do people really use it beyond that? It has found its way into a fair share of Sweets Life recipes ( pasta sauce , unique sandwiches , meatless meatballs ), but it's nowhere near as popular as many of the other veggies that grace this space (kale!). I'm striving to change that, and have been picking up eggplant at the store more often recently. I'm a huge fan of Joanne's eggplant burgers , and this is a great way for the vegetable to star in an appetizer. My only change to this recipe would be to toss in a generous amount of feta! It needs some saltiness to counter the tang of the vinegar. We ate it with pita chips, but you could also scoop it up with pita bread!
