Eggplant Dip

With my parents in town I try to spend with them as much time as possible, and that leaves sometimes a little time to cook... or to take pictures of what I cooked. 
Today we were busy with holiday decorations inside and out. By dinner time I had an appetite for something warm and light. I had just about 15 minutes to create a meal before driving to school to pick up the cowboy-son, so in a blender went what I had already cooked:

  • 1 roasted eggplant
  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas
  • 5 drops liquid smoke
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1/8 tsp garam masala powder
  • 1/4 tsp dry dill
  • salt to taste

My Blendtec has a setting that allows to warm up ingredients during blending.  In less than two minutes I had a hot meal all family enjoyed so much that I didn't have a chance to take a good picture. 
By the time I was ready with my garnishments, I was left with this:

For me it was a main course plus some salad, for everyone else it was a side dish as they all had some meat with it. 

Until next time,
Cowboy Country Vegetarian
