Recipe Ingredients for White Bean and Roasted Eggplant Hummus

1 1/2 pound eggplant, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
2 tbsp Olive oil, for drizzling
1/3 cup Olive oil
1 pinch Kosher salt, for seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pinch black pepper, for seasoning
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
15 ounces cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1/3 cup flat-leaf parsley
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from about 1 lemon)
1 clove garlic

Recipe Directions for White Bean and Roasted Eggplant Hummus

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and place an oven rack in the middle.

  2. Place the eggplant on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown. Set aside to cool.

  3. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the cooled eggplant, beans, parsley, lemon juice, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Pulse until the mixture is coarsely chopped. With the machine running, gradually add 1/3 cup of olive oil until the mixture is creamy. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

  4. Place the hummus in a dipping bowl and serve with the cucumber slices. Alternatively, spoon the hummus over the cucumber slices and arrange on a serving platter.
