White Bean & Roasted Eggplant Hummus

If you have noticed I was MIA since last few weeks, but lots going on in personal life, got promotion at work, which was really surprised me because I started working after 8 years of break and in 9 months I proved myself that I am worth it that's the achievement I was waiting for and other was we moved to different city for better education and school for kids, which is very important here. So packing, unpacking , babysitter, new commute and in all this blog was last in my mind. So finally today I decide that let me start at least posting once a week, before I get back to my normal routine which was 3 days a week.

So the other dip I was making with my nachos was this hummus. I had half eggplant in the fridge and have to use it so I just cooked it in microwave and empty the can of white beans with tahini, garlic, salt, pepper , lime juice and olive oil and make this healthy hummus. This kind of dish is always good for serve when you have company, its easy to make and pleased the crowd. And it hardly takes 5 minutes to put the dish on the table. So what are you waiting for ? when you have next get together make this and enjoy it with your friends and family.


½ big eggplant, roasted
1 can of White bean (White Kidney beans)
2 tbsp. of Tahini
1 juice of lime
Salt as per taste
4 Tbsp.  or more EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive oil)
1 clove of garlic or two.


Remove the skin of eggplant and cut it in cubes and put it in microwave safe bowl and cook it for 10 minutes.
Empty the bean in colander and wash it under water and remove all sticky water.
Put the beans, eggplant , clove in blender, pulse it and make a puree. Add tahini, lime juice, olive oil and salt and pulse it more till it becomes nice and runny dip.
If you need more olive oil add it.
Take it out in bowl and add more olive oil in center and enjoyed with homemade pita chips.
