Instructions

  • Char the eggplants.
  • Place the eggplants on a baking sheet lined with baking foil or strong parchment paper.
  • Using a fork, prick the skin of each of the eggplants several times.
  • Place them under a broiler for 5-8 minutes until the skin in lightly charred.
  • Turn them on the other side half way through the charring.
  • Bake the eggplants.
  • Once the eggplants are charred, turn the broiler off and preheat the oven to 220 °C/ 430 °F.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes.
  • They will get wrinkly and very soft inside when they are done.
  • Remove from the oven and leave them to cool down enough to handle.
  • Slit the eggplants ...
  • Charring the eggplants will add a smoky flavour.
  • If you skip this step, add 10 more minutes to the baking time.
  • ...
  • and scoop the flesh out.
  • To remove the excess juice, I placed the flesh in a sieve (or you can use a colander) before mixing with the remaining ingredients.
  • Discard the skins and stems.
  • If you prefer a chunky texture: Place the eggplant flesh on a chopping board and cut into small pieces.
  • Then, in a bowl, mix with all the remaining ingredients (apart from the olive oil and paprika).
  • If you prefer a smooth texture: Place the eggplant in a food processor and pulse until smooth.
  • I used my Kenwood mixer with a food processor attachment.
  • Transfer into a bowl and add all the remaining ingredients (apart from the olive oil and paprika).
  • Enjoy with some freshly cut veggies, Keto Cheesy Crackers or Ultimate Keto Breadsticks.
  • If not using immediately, cover and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
