We are gloriously exhausted! Preparations for Christmas are intense…but coming along. Our homes may be a bit of a mess, with shopping bags and wrapping paper everywhere, but they smell pretty fantastic because our kitchens have been baking warehouses these past few weeks. Life is good, and delicious.
We don’t know about you, but in our homes, melitzanosalata often plays second and third fiddle to some of the other, more popular Greek dips like tzatziki and taramosalata. This is a shame, and every time we do have melitzanosalata, we vow to make it again very soon; it is so good, so easy, and pretty good for you too. It is also a great way to use up any eggplant surplus from the garden when you don’t feel like eggplant chips (actually…we always feel like eggplant chips), or you don’t have the time to invest in making moussaka.
This dish looks so impressive, so fancy, that it is hard to believe that it can easily be whipped together in a moment’s notice. The sweetness of the honey, paired with the saltiness of the feta and the crunch of the sesame seeds and nuts, creates a dish which is rich in both flavour and texture. Pretty impressive for a recipe which has only a few basic ingredients and can be ready in under 10 minutes. We wish everything in life was this easy, and this tasty!
