Once you preheat the oven to 400 degrees, adding the eggplant to your baking sheet is the next step. It’s amazing how a nice slow cooking in the oven makes the eggplant totally tender. Once you bake for 45 minutes and it becomes lightly browned, it’s ready to get started on the dip. Just make sure to let it cool slightly as it’s going to be hot!

My boys aren’t like overly big fans of veggies but they do love it when I make this dip. It’s so flavorful and really just has a flavor that is unique and wonderful. I like to buy eggplants when they’re on sale at the store because it makes this simple dip recipe super affordable!

Are all parts of eggplant edible?

It is but this is just up to you if you like the texture and the taste. Some people like to eat the skin and fleshy part of the eggplant but not the included seeds.
