chopped fresh dill
freshly ground black pepper
Excellent!! This was delicious - instead of broiling, I baked the eggplant (400 degrees for 45 minutes), then peeled, drained and chopped it. I also decreased the olive oil down to 2T rather than 3T. Will definately be making this again!
I have had eggplant caviar many many times and it has never tasted or looked this bad.
Dill does not belong in eggplant caviar. 'Nuff said.
I added a little garlic powder and used chopped scallions. Everyone spread it on crackers and raved at our family reunion!
I make a version of this from a different recipe that has garlic and capers instead of onions, and basil and parsley instead of dill. I bake some pita bread to make "chips" to server alongside this dish.
I found my first attempt with this recipe a little too salty--my fault for seasoning before tasting. I think when I make this again--and I will--I'll add 2 cloves of garlic, a little lemon juice, and cut down the salt. I found it to taste better cold. Not kiddy food, but the grownups will like it. Thanks, Ms. Mann.
This is delicious with some slight alterations. All they had at the grocery store were slightly smaller eggplants so I broiled it 10 minutes on each side. In the meantime, I sauteed an entire small onion I diced with 2 cloves of smashed and chopped garlic in just a tad bit of olive oil. It only took a few minutes. I added that to the eggplant pulp. I didn't measure my other ingredients. I did it more to taste. I also left out the dill. It did need a nice amount of kosher salt to add some flavor. I plan on making this all the time. My husband and I both love it.
Yep. Looks icky in the end, and still tastes really good. I took pts from other reviewers...cut back on OO, added garlic powder, cut back on dill a bit. I like the fact that it is low-cal, and healthy.
Well, this recipe definately caught my eye! Eggplant Caviar?? It is WONDERFUL. Even if you don't like eggplant, you'll never notice it! This is definately a dish for onion lovers. It is quite oniony. I had this as an appetizer for Easter Dinner and everyone loved it! ***Note: It looks quite icky once mixed, but it's delicious, never fear!!
