2 medium eggplants or 4/5 Chinese eggplants
Wash the eggplants and peppers and pierce with a fork to allow steam to escape, put everything on the barbecue or in a toaster oven. It will take at least a half hour+ until the vegetables are properly roasted, depending on the size of the vegetables and how close they are to the heat. The garlic will be done sooner. Remove the garlic cloves when they are soft, allow the eggplant and peppers to roast until they are slightly blistered on the outside. Let cool.
2 medium red peppers
3 or more cloves garlic with skin
When everything is cool enough to handle, peel and mash together with some olive oil . You could also add spices, i.e. basil for a Mediterranean flavour, or cumin and coriander for a middle eastern flavour. Makes a good dip for pita bread, or a sandwich spread.
