A Party Dip: Roasted Eggplant And Garlic
Who doesn’t love a delicious dip? They are so easy to make and the perfect addition to a party. You can use the leftovers to add to a salad or enjoy as your own healthy snack. In this dip, I used roasted eggplant as the main ingredient. Eggplants have many healthy properties such as polyphenols which have been found to exhibit anti-cancer effects, and anthocyanins and chlorogenic acid that function as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. These help to protect the cells from damage caused by free radicals and in turn prevent cancer development and cell damage. These nutrients are predominantly found in the skin so leave the skin intact in this dip to increase its nutrient profile.
