This is a great variation to your typical hummus recipe.  Eggplant is a nightshade, however, so if you are avoiding nightshades you can check out our other hummus recipe here which uses avocado as the base.  This recipe involves roasting the eggplant first for about 40 minutes, but it is well worth the wait! This dip is a wonderful way to get in your veggies during the day.  It also works well as a salad dressing variation on its own or adding in some balsamic vinegar.   Feel free to add any herbs or spices you would like such as cumin, chili powder, and/or cilantro.  There are many variations and names to this recipe such as baba ghanoush or mutabbal.
