  • 7 Ingredients

A fast and healthy snack or starter.

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 2 Whole Eggplants
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Unhulled Tahini
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • 1 Tbsp Black pepper ground
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Tsp Dried Mixed Herbs
  • 2 Cloves garlic, crushed


  1. In a tray which will fit in your airfryer, place the eggplants, olive oil and herbs and coat well.
  2. Cook on 200 deg for 10 minutes.
  3. Once cooled slightly, scoop out cooked flesh into a dish suitable for blending. Add juice from lemon, pepper, tahini, garlic and blend well. To serve drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle extra pepper. Serve with toasted bread, crisped in airfryer for 1 minute. You can add salt to this but I chose not to, to keep it as healthy as possible. It is very flavoursome and versatile in recipes such as salads, in veg lasagne, etc as well as on it's own as a dip.


There are many other variations to this dish, including adding chopped parsley, lime instead of lemon juice, adding whole chickpeas or lentils to it and serving with flat bread, the possibilities are endless!

  • Thanks for the recipe. Always like to try something a bit different.


  • Thanks for sharing this great recipe!.


  • Thank you for sharing this, I’ve never tried to make it, I’ll give it a go.


  • This dip was simply delicious, so easy to make. It was so easy to make. In an effort to cut back on fats, I only used a teaspoon of olive oil, and used Greek yoghurt as a substitute for the rest if the olive oil, and everyone enjoyed it.
    Used carrot and capsicum sticks to dip. Also tore up Lebanese bread, (instead if chips, and crackers) and dried them on a low heat In the air fryer. Oven of course would work just as well.
    I’m going to keep this dip in the fridge a lot, much better for me to snack on than cakes and biscuits”
