Spicy Roasted Eggplant Dip Recipe


We're a little past eggplant season to technically call this a CSA recipe- but it was born of my CSA surplus this fall. 

You can definitely adjust the heat to your taste, or just use plain roasted red peppers and don't add any heat at all- alternately, serve up with some red pepper flakes on the side in a pretty little dish to allow each guest to spice it up as they like. I also love this with some dates, they are an awesome sweet counter to the savory heat of the dip, some ying yang for your food.

Final amazing use for this? As a spread on a veggie sandwich. Picture more roasted veggies, piled up with some cheese, garlicky greens, and this zesty eggplant (which I taste tested and heartily approve of!).


Spicy Roasted Eggplant Dip

Makes about 2 cups (depending on the size of your eggplants)



1 large eggplant roasted (400 degrees for about 20 minutes/until soft and cooked through)

1/4 cup tahini

2-3 cloves garlic

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp spicy paprika

1/4 cup good olive oil

2 large roasted red peppers (hot or not)* if you can't find spicy red peppers you can use the jarred version and toss in a smaller hot pepper for heat



Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until combined and desired consistancy reached. Taste, adjust, and serve as needed.

by Noelani at Mode


As a [new] mother of two, I know the value of a quick, easy, and satisfying meal, because really, when are you going to have another hot second to eat??

These meals and snacks are all of the above: quick, uncomplicated, and full of healthy, protein packed ingredients that will keep everyone in the family happy and healthy. Especially those new mamas out there who want to regain that pre-baby shape, myself included. I'm starting to work out again and need fresh and filling items that I can take on the go and prep in advance or with two kids hanging from me.

Here's what I'll be cooking up in the coming months! Bon appetit! And wish me luck on operation shape-up.

Welcome Niko!


We've been busy welcoming our baby boy Niko this month.


Likes: drinking milk, crying, sleeping, and pooping.

Dislikes: sleep.


That pretty much sums up our lives right now.

He is handsome+ charming, with some snips and snails and puppydog tails, of course. I can't wait to see what the rest of his life has in store.
