  • 200 g cooked chickpeas
  • 50 g cashews previously soak in water for a couple of hours
  • 2 cloves garlic

Soaking cashews

How to roast eggplants

  • Wash eggplants well and pat them dry with a dishtowel (I used 4 Italian eggplants).
  • Cut them in half lengthwise and lay in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  • Roast in the oven for 40-55 minutes or until golden and a fork can easily pierce the flesh. The time will depend on the size of eggplants.
  • Remove from oven to cool.
  • Scoop out inside of eggplant, leaving the skin behind.

Tahini-free roasted eggplant hummus

  • Place all ingredients into a high-speed blender and process until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • Serve in a bowl and top with cooked chickpeas, pomegranate seeds, sesame seeds, and thyme.
