This roasted eggplant mousse is the perfect eggplant dip you can make as an appetizer for parties or brunches! It has an extra-smooth texture and a delicious taste!
Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 4-6
  • 3 medium-sized eggplants
  • ½ lemon's juice
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 4 Tbsps olive oil
  • sumac
  • sea salt, to taste
  1. Rinse the eggplants and heat the grill pan.
  2. Grill the eggplants on each side; don’t forget to turn them over every 10 minutes or so. Grill them until they are covered with a black crust.
  3. Peel the eggplants, cleaning off the black crust. Put them on a wooden platter and let them drain for at least half an hour. The liquid is bitter. The longer you drain them, the sweeter they’ll be.
  4. Puree the eggplants in a food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth and mousse-like.
  5. Serve with sumac on top.
