This is a super easy, healthy and tasty dip made with few ingredients. It kicks off my series on vegan recipes made with ingredients from Trader Joes! Using some frozen and already prepared items they have, makes this a breeze and quick to whip up. Just note the tahini sauce is not your basic tahini paste, their’s is in the refrigerated section by the hummus and is made with the paste but already has the other ingredients in it. See photo below. You’ll also use the frozen Misto alla Griglia (aka grilled eggplant and zucchini)
Makes approx. 1 1/2 cups
1 package frozen Trader Joes Misto all Griglia eggplant & zucchini
1/4 cup Trader Joes Tahini Sauce
Juice of half a lemon
1 clove garlic, peeled
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 fresh parsley leaves
Salt & pepper to taste
Defrost eggplant and zucchini according to package directions.
Add all ingredients to food processor and pulse or puree to desired consistency. That’s it.
Serve with pita chips, crostini, as a spread on sandwiches…
