Ingredients

  • 1 medium eggplant diced into ½-inch cubes
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 3 tablespoons Annie’s Goddess Dressing
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup tahini room temperature
  • 1 small garlic clove minced
  • 1 can chickpeas 15 ounces, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons parsley chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Spread eggplant cubes on a baking sheet and drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon kosher salt. Toss to combine and spread the cubes evenly across the baking sheet. Bake for at least 20 minutes or until all cubes are soft.
  • Once cooked, transfer the roasted eggplant to a medium bowl and add 3 tablespoons Annie’s Goddess Dressing.
  • In the bowl of a food processor, blend together the lemon juice and tahini until smooth and light in color, about 3 minutes.
  • Scrape down the sides of the food processor and add garlic, remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, cumin, and ½ teaspoon kosher salt. Blend for another 2 minutes. 
  • Add half of the chickpeas and blend until smooth. Add the remaining chickpeas and blend until smooth. While blending, add up to 3 tablespoons of cold water until you achieve your desired consistency. 
  • Serve the hummus topped with the roasted eggplant and chopped parsley.

Notes

Many homemade hummus recipes will suggest peeling each individual chickpea. Please do not. Sure, your hummus might be a tiny bit more smooth. But your sanity will not.
