Smoky Eggplant Dip

Eggplant is one of my favourite vegetables; it is versatile and takes on the flavours it is cooked with. It is for this reason that whilst recently experimenting with campfire cooking I was very keen to grill eggplant and make a smoky dip.

This dip is super simple, rich in flavour and incredibly tasty. Nom, nom, nom!

01 camp fire


  • 2 eggplants
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt


  • Campfire
  • Wire rack
  • Chopping board
  • Knife
  • Bowl
  • Fork


  1. Pierce the eggplants with a fork and put on a wire rack over the campfire until black
  2. Remove the skin on the eggplant, chop the flesh and put in a bowl (you may wish to squeeze some of the moisture out of the eggplant before putting in the bowl)
  3. Add the other ingredients and mash with the fork
