A quick and healthy weekday recipe in between all the gourmet! This is a paleo version of hummus. Traditional hummus is made of chickpeas and falls outside of the paleo lifestyle. I came up with the idea to change them for aubergines. Even though we don't eat strictly paleo anymore we still make this aubergine hummus from time to time.
2 medium sized aubergines
1,5 dl (1/2 cup) of almonds or walnuts
4 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp neutral oil
1 garlic clove
a squeeze of lemon
Heat a frying pan with olive oil, cut the aubergines and fry them in low temp until they are totally transparent and soggy. Add some salt and let them cool down. In a blender or processor, add nuts and neutral oil and mix until it is a uniform paste (also known as nut butter). Add the aubergines to the mix and a squeeze of a lemon. Add more salt if needed. Mix until smooth.
Enjoy with carrots, celery, or even on a sandwich.
SALMA contacted us and asked us to make a few recipes for their newly launched websitewww.salma.no. We accepted the challenge! But we had to think hard to make an exciting and good looking dish to match Heia Mat, Mat på Bordet and Fru Timian who had already contributed.
We all have a friend (or more) that has a food allergy. Sometimes it is hard to know what to make for a party or a gathering that can be allergic "friendly". Thus we made some canapés with a gluten-, lactose- and nut free bread. Very easy to make and they taste as good as any other finger food.
