Afghan Eggplant Dip
Afghans love eggplant. I’ve loved it my entire life – fried, stewed, in an eggplant dip. Honestly, I didn’t even know this dish could be served as a dip on it’s own since we’ve always had it as a side dish with rice and meat and all the other good Afghan food. But, I’ve discovered that this creamy eggplant dish is fresh and satisfying on its own, no rice required! (But I mean, if you’ve got rice eat it!)
This dip is similar to babaganoush, which is the most well known eggplant dip that I know, but the addition of dill and mint making this a snack that wakes your mouth up. You can easily make this vegan by using a non-dairy yogurt or sour cream while keeping the rest of the ingredients the same. Serve it with bread, pita, or veggies on your charcuterie board, or just on it’s own as an appetizer. Or as a side dish, the way Afghans do.
