Roasted Eggplant Hummus is a tasty way to enjoy hummus with some added veggies. In fact, each serving of this appetizer has a whole serving of vegetables
I have this obsession with hummus. I've made it too many times to count, and I've posted about it borderline too many times to be normal.
It wouldn't be weird if I had an I ♥ hummus bumpersticker.
Well I guess it would be kinda weird, but it wouldn't be a lie.
Since eggplant is in season for the next few months, I thought it would be a good idea to make an eggplant hummus.
Naturally, I thought right.
Roasting the eggplant really brings out its flavor and makes this hummus good-oooo-oood.
I love how this hummus is so satisfying but also packs in the veggies.
I discuss my obsession with veggies almost daily, so it shouldn't surprise you that hummus with lots of veggies that's served with veggies makes me really happy. Even if you're not a veggie-loving freak like me, you will like this roasted eggplant hummus.
