  • Gluten Free Eggplant and Walnut Dip

    My summer eggplant bushes may still be in the seedling stage, but I’m hoping they’ll produce lots of juicy Lebanese eggplants when the time is right. I love eggplant, or aubergine – in dips, chips, pickles and salads. This dip is light and delicious, it doesn’t contain tahini and is not quite Baba ghanoush but similar in taste. It may be best to ask the resident BBQ guru in your life to assist, if barbecues are not your thing. Serve with your favourite GF flat bread, corn chips or biscuits.

    1 large eggplant
    50g walnut pieces
    1 large clove garlic, crushed
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    2 tablespoons creme fraiche or sour cream
    Handful fresh parsley, roughly chopped
    Good pinch salt
    Ground black pepper
    Gluten free flatbread to serve

    Wipe eggplant with a damp cloth to clean surface. Use barbecue or stovetop gas burner to blacken the whole eggplant, so the fruit will develop its distinctive smoky flavour. Continue cooking until flesh is soft and cooked through, placing in the oven for 10 minutes at 180° if necessary to achieve this. Set aside to cool, then gently remove skin and discard.
    Roughly chop eggplant and place in food processor with walnuts, crushed garlic, lemon juice, creme fraiche and parsley. Blend until desired consistency is reached. Season with salt and pepper.
    Delicious served with a drizzle of best quality olive oil, garnished with fresh parsley or coriander and  gluten free flatbread, warmed on the barbecue.

    Follow recipe to prepare eggplant, then place all ingredients in mixing bowl. Mix 5 sec/speed 5. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula and repeat 5 sec/speed 5, or until desired consistency is reached.
