Aubergine Dip

In the midst of moving with boxes all around me and things lying everywhere, I thought to myself what could make this house look more disastrous? Making 3 dips of course!

It was only suppose to be basil pesto, just to tame the crazy basil bush, but all of a sudden I was like “Well if I’m going to make a mess, I should make a hummus too and I’ll give peeling them a try!”  I’ve got to say peeling your chickpeas before blending is the way of the future, its just so creamy and wonderful.  After making the hummus, I looked around for anything else to make into a dip, because three dips just felt right and that’s when this beautiful roasted aubergine dip came to be, this is such a delicious dip that will make any aubergine hater doubt their choices.
