This Loaded Greek Eggplant Dip is the low carb cousin to baba ganoush made with only five ingredients! There’s no tahini, and all those savory sprinkles are optional, but highly recommended!
Loaded Greek Eggplant Dip
Here’s an eggplant dip that’s very similar to Baba Ganoush, but there’s no tahini in it, so it magically becomes the most diet-accommodating dip…on the planet!
Everyone need a good eggplant dip recipe, right?
This one is creamy and smooth on the bottom, and loaded with texture and savory sprinkles on the top.
Even if you’re not vegan, or GF, or paleo, or low carb, or whole 30…this dip IS!
These diet bonuses are often inadvertent outcomes of my ingredient preferences and recipe style.
That’s my jam…and I love the challenge of developing recipes that help my readers enjoy plant-based food, whether they’re restricted or not.
