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.
