It’s been a while friends! Well— actually only a little over a week— but it feels like a while, that’s for sure.
I spontaneously took most of the past week off of blog-related things since it was my BIRTHDAY on Friday (28 whoop whoop!) and I spent the weekend relaxing with my husband and friends.
Sometimes a weekend recharge is exactly what you need, especially when birthdays are involved.
I’m coming back at you today with a seriously SIMPLE but utterly delicious dip that I honestly make ALL the time at my house. Ohhh and it’s, like, seriously healthy too.
The star: this Roasted Eggplant Red Pepper Dip.
It’s inspired by and very closely adapted from Ina Garten’s original recipe, so I’m taking absolutely NO credit for this one, but it is just too good not to share. Basically you just roast up an eggplant, a red pepper, and some red onion, then blend it all together with some olive oil, garlic, basil, salt, and pepper. Viola! One of the most delicious healthy dips you will EVER put in your mouth!
I make this dip all the time for picnics, appetizers, or just to snack on throughout the week between meals. It’s absolutely sensational with grilled bread or pita, but is just as delicious with crisp veggies or as a spread on sandwiches. Seriously, the sky is the limit with this stuff!
Well, I’m going to keep this short and sweet today because it’s a busy week (last week of school over here!!), but I promise I have another tasty, healthy DRINK coming your way in just a few days.
