Simply seasoned eggplant is great as a dip, a spread for crackers or crusty bread, or a flavor-booster for chicken. Simply seasoned eggplant is great as a dip, a spread for crackers or crusty bread, or a flavor-booster for chicken.

    Love this! Try cooking whole eggplants in the microwave: pierce a few times with a small knife, place on paper towel, cook each one for four minutes on high power. (Time varies per microwave.) Let it rest, it will get soft. Comes out creamy & great for mashing up! OIL FREE! - 8/21/07

    I made this 4 times this summer and it was well-received by everyone. I wouldn't call it spicy, but it is tasty. I also put the eggplant in the food processor and found the texture to be better than just chopping it. Added some cayenne. Served with homemade pita chips. - 8/31/08

    I think next time I make this, I will just go nuts with the garllic. I added wasabi powder and tabasco sauce (I couldn't figure out what would give it really good flavor. When I added more pepper, it came alive a bit, but I think the key to this dip is tons and tons of Emeril-approved GAH-LIC!! - 11/15/08
