 Roasted Eggplant Hummus | Homemade Hummus | Easy Hummus Recipe | 6 Ingredient Hummus | Food Made Simple

I love all things Mediterranean, especially hummus, but I have always been slightly nervous to make my own.  A few of my friends assured me that it was super easy but for some reason it always just seemed so complicated.

Well, now that I have made it I can honestly tell you that it is NOT complicated at all.

DIG DEEPER


Great family meals don’t have to be complicated. This mini cookbook serves up 10 easy meals, each only requiring 5 ingredients or less

It is so easy.  So cheap.  So yummy and the perfect summer snack!

 All you really need to make hummus is a can of chickpeas, some garlic, salt, & some olive oil–the rest of the ingredients are completely optional.  I personally think adding the roasted eggplant adds a great texture and depth of flavor, but you could easily make it without it.

Roasted Eggplant Hummus ingredients.

Here is what you need:

1 medium-to-large eggplant
1 15 oz. can chickpeas
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil 
 

Peel the eggplant and cut into thick slices.

Step 1: Peel eggplant & cut into thick slices.

Sprinkle eggplant slices with salt and let sit for about 15 minutes.

Step 2: Sprinkle both sides heavily with salt, then let sit for 15-30 minutes.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Pat eggplant slices dry of excess water.

Step 3: Rinse salt off eggplant slices & pat dry.

PLace eggplant slices on baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Step 4: Then place on foil-lined cookie sheet, brush with olive oil, & sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.  Roast for 30 minutes. Let cool slightly.

Add chickpeas, garlic, and other ingredients to a food processor and blend for a few seconds, until smooth.

 Step 5:  Place chickpeas in food processor.  Add garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, & lemon juice, then pulse until blended.  Just a few seconds.

Add eggplant to food processor and blend for a few seconds.

 Step 6:  Add roasted eggplant and pulse again until blended, just a few seconds more.

Slowly add olive oil as food processor is blending; blend until smooth.

 Step 7:  While food processor is running, slowly add olive oil in a steady stream & mix until blended.

Serve hummus dip with veggies or crackers, or use as a sandwich spread.

Step 8: Transfer to dish and let chill for 4 hours or overnight, until flavors are blended.  Serve with pita or tortilla chips and some fresh veggies.

    My household loves hummus so we will be trying this out in the near future for sure!

    Does salting the eggplant before help with the bitterness? I was making a layered vegetables smothered with mozzarella dish for my website & the bitterness of the eggplant made me remove it from the dish entirely.
    I’ll have to try this! I love hummus.

      I believe the purpose of salting is to pull excess water out.

    Ruth, We love humus and we love eggplant, but I’ve never thought of using eggplant to make humus, but it makes perfect sense. Thanks for the idea.
