Eggplant Dip (Rodier) Recipe
1 medium eggplant
3 medium green onions, finely chopped
1 large tomato, peeled & chopped
1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 stalk celery, finely chopped
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice/vinegar
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
Eggplant dip is popular in many Mediterranean countries. In the West
it is often called poor man's caviar. It's good with raw vegetable
dippers or on crisp Melba toast.
Prick whole eggplant in several places with a fork. Place in a baking
pan and bake in 400 F oven for 30 minutes. Cool, peel and chop
finely. (A blender or food processor can be used but avoid
overprocessing. Dip is best when it has some crunch.)
Combine eggplant, onions, tomato, garlic and celery. Add lemon juice,
vegetable oil, salt and freshly ground pepper. Cover tightly and
refrigerate for several hours to blend flavors.

Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
The problems associated with low carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Higher consumption of animal-based products could lead into elevated consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which most authorities believe will increase the risk of coronary problems.
Cutting out carbs may mean missing out on necessary nutrients from healthy carbohydrate foods which should be part of any well-balanced diet, specifically those obtained from vegetables, fruits and whole grains.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, mangos and winter squash)
These colorful foods are rich in carotenes thought by doctors to play a role in helping prevent cancer, spefically cancer of the stomach and lesophagus. Many also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every diet.
