Armenian Eggplant Dip Recipe
1 medium egg plant
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp flour
1 salt and pepper to taste
1 freshly grated nutmeg - to taste
3 oz parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Prick eggplant with a fork in 10-12 places and rub with olive oil.
Bake uncovered for about an hour, or until the pulp feels quite soft.
Scoop out the pulp and place in a small saucepan. Add lemon juice and
cook over medium heat until the water has evaporated - about 5
Saute the onion in butter. Blend enough of the flour in to make a
thick roux, then add milk slowly to form a thick sauce. Beat lightly
into the eggplant. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Add the
Parmesan cheese and a few drops of warm milk if dip is too thick.
Store overnight in the refrigerator but bring to room temperature
before serving with crackers, bagel chips, or strips of crisped pita.

Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
As an alternative to focusing on the junk foods you ought to eliminate from your dietary regime, direct your attention to the sensible foods that you might want to introduce to your daily routine. If you are able to inject the recommended portions healthy fruit & vegetables into your meal plan, you will discover that stop feeling hungry and have a far lower chance of being seduced by those damaging mid-morning potato chips.
Some lower carb diet pointers:
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbs. We all need energy, and carbohydrates are a very efficient energy source. A low carb diet requires more care in monitoring you energy levels, as the energy provided by protein and fat is much slower acting.
* Read food labels
Be sceptical of food packaging that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the reverse of the tin or packet. Some are only marginally lowered and in some cases still higher than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are exactly the same.
Lycopene super foods
