Eggplant Dip

I always have raw crackers laying around, therefor, I try to have some sort of dip laying around as well. Dips and crackers are such a nice, satisfying quick snack. (It actually ended up being my dinner my dinner tonight since I couldn’t stop eating it as I was letting it cool before putting in to containers.) I made this dip several weeks ago and really liked it, so I made it again tonight and wrote down the ingredients this time so I could share it with you.

I love eating as a dip with crackers and raw vegetables, but I could see it being tasty as a spread in a sandwich or with rice.
