- 1 clove garlic
- 2 cups garbanzo beans ( I prefer to do my own the night before, otherwise, use a large can (19 oz- drain liquid)
- 4 TBS lemon juice
- 2 tsp tahini
- 4 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 teaspoon salt
- salt & pepper to taste
- 2 TBS olive oil
Stuff you need to make it ;
SIMPLE and easy oven crisped Pita Chips:
Cut whole wheat pita bread into wedges. Put on baking sheet, bake @ 375 F until lightly browned ( 8-10 min)
What to do with the Stuff:
Some helpful notes :
“Sweating the Eggplant”– once all slices are done, line on paper towel, and lightly salt, let set for 20- 30 min
This gets rid of any potential “bitterness” that some say eggplants have
Homemade fresh tomato sauce– This is an essential in my kitchen. I am always whipping some up for many different things. For this batch, I used 6 diced Roma tomatoes, 1 small red onion, 4 cloves garlic, salt, pepper, Italian herbs (basil, oregano, thyme, parsley), and threw them all in the food processor, whirred them up, then simmered, and flavored accordingly. On occasions, I will throw in some roasted red peppers in the processor. I have also added some excellent flavor by sauteing some anchovies in olive oil, then add the mix to that.. really added some nice some depth.
The filling of your choice- Don’t be afraid to experiment and play with this part.GET CREATIVE 😉 Last time I did this, and added some sun dried tomatoes, added an entirely different, sweeter flavor. I also did a batch with Feta cheese, and Kalamata olive puree, that was delish too. Another time I used this mixture listed above, and added marinated artichoke hearts. It will be SO good, no matter what.
