Looks yummy. ;-) What size eggplant did you use? I'm guessing this is a 18--22 cm "Japanese eggplant" but I could be wrong.... eggplant size varies so much!

ALSO, if I choose to char the eggplant (for that lovely smokey flavor), would you recommend using TWO eggplants to account for loss of skin and some of the flesh which can sometimes get a bit burnt.

Thanks! ;-)

Hi Suz, sorry for the delay in getting back to you but thank you for stopping by! Hmm, a medium-large sized eggplant, I'd say - so yes, around the size you mention!

I think with this recipe, it's one of those that you can bend around as it fits. If you are charring the eggplant, and lose a little of it, I think it would just make the recipe sweeter (more caramelised flavour). I think two eggplants would make a lot of dip, even with some skin missing!

  • I'm Andrea, and am obsessed with creating fabulous food. After I managed to ditch dieting, the reason Chocolate and Beyond was born, it seemed natural to evolve my site into a foodie blog. More so since I also ditched animal produce to be vegan. Now, I love showing how inventive cruelty-free cooking can be. And sometimes I like to rant, too. I wouldn't be myself otherwise :) x

    PS. This blog LOVES your comments! Especially about the food!
