Low Carb Eggplant Hummus

Low Carb Eggplant Hummus

Low Carb Eggplant Hummus is a delicious way to eat hummus without the carbs. It’s simple to make, and tastes divine. Use it as a dip, or as a tasty addition to food bowls, eggs, salads and anywhere else you would use traditional hummus. Try this sprinkled with some home-made Dukkah for a great combination of textures and tastes, particularly if you serve it with eggs for breakfast..delish!!

I love the fact that this recipe uses the entire eggplant, yet still achieves a little smokiness in flavour because it has been oven roasted. Feel free to blend till smooth or leave it a little chunkier if you prefer.

To make this dip vegan, paleo or dairy free, simply omit the yoghurt and replace with some additional water.


Low Carb Eggplant Dip
1 large eggplant diced
1/2 onion finely chopped
A dash of extra virgin olive oil-EVOO
2 tspns minced garlic
4 Tbspns Tahini
4 Tbspns natural Greek yoghurt unsweetened
4 Tbspns water
2-4 Tbspns lemon juice- or to taste, more for a tarter taste, less for more subtlety.
1/2 tspn smoked paprika
Salt and Pepper to season

1. Drizzle the eggplant and onion with some extra virgin olive oil-EVOO and bake at 200C/400 F for 35-40 minutes. Cover with a lid and allow to steam and soften a little while cooling.
2. Blitz the onion and egg plant mixture, along with the water, garlic and paprika until smooth and creamy (or a little textured if desired.)
3. Add remaining ingredients and blitz or blend until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Serve drizzled with a little EVOO on top and sprinkle with some additional paprika and fresh parsley.

To make this vegan/dairy free, simply omit the yoghurt and add some additional water.
Egg plant can be replaced with zucchini.

To Serve
Use as a dip or spread and serve with your favourite low carb crackers or vegetable crudites.
It's delicious when combined with Middle Eastern flavours such as Dukkah, flatbreads, etc.
Use in poke bowls, food bowls and breakfast bowls or as an accompaniment to vegetables such as Moroccan Roasted Cauliflower.
