As you do not love the Eggplant? I love them and am preparing to Sicily in every way. Today I leave you the recipe for eggplant cream with yogurt and mint, garnished with almonds and pomegranate seeds. This recipe is inspired in large part to the traditional recipe Tunisian, but I enriched with extra virgin olive oil.

Servo this aubergine cream as an aperitif with simple toasted bread and with the rich white cake. And 'an aromatic and light cream: I prepare it with Greek yogurt magro, but you can of course make the whole one, denser, and will have an even more rich and creamy texture. Essential fresh mint and garlic, What a little spicy. If you don't like garlic desist from preparing it. Have a good day!

Hello Simona, Thanks! Is’ really good, creamy and light. I think the secret is to find a slightly spicy garlic and I would try it with the warm focaccia… A hug, ADA
