Eggplant Dip Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

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 or vinegar
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

Recipe Preparation

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

A few tips on healthy eating

If your aim is to lose weight and also enhance your all round well-being, among other things you really should follow a thoughtfully planned healthy-minded dietary regime. In a perfect world, this ought to include five helpings of grains and vegetables every day and take in the right proportion of nutrients.
Some lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate bars for chocolate muffins. If you have taken the time to convert your most popular chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, you really shouldn't add in those high carbohydrate chocolate chips. Break up a reduced carbohydrate chocolate bar into tiny pieces and use that in its place.

* Make low carb bread crumbs for breaded foods. Whilst you can buy reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs, you can make them at home by simply using low carb bread. All you have to do is simply toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in the oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is quite hard and crispy, grind it up in your food processor or blender. Keep in an airtight jar or container.

Super foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & tomato)

Lycopene is a non-synthetic chemical compound and part of the carotenid family of phytochemicals. Lycopene is behind the deep red hue of quite a few foods.

Intrestingly, unlike many nutritional compounds, lycopene does not degrade if cooked, but is in fact increased in efficacy by being heated.

. Lycoprene's key value is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be an asset in the fight to reduce the chances of cancer.

It is the most potent eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is linked with skin aging. It's also thought to curtail the progression of atherosclerosis.
