  • 2 tbsp Almond Butter
  • 1 Garlic Clove

  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt

Goats Cheese and Basil Dip

  • 1 soft Goat cheese
  • 2 tbsp Mayonnaise

Caviar d’Aubergine

Instructions
 

Olive and Almond Tapenade

  • Put all the ingredients in a mixer and purée until smooth.

Goats Cheese and Basil Dip

  • Again so easy. Just add everything into a blender, season with salt to taste and blend into a smooth cream. Add a little lemon to preserve the green of the basil and you’re ready to go.

Caviar d’Aubergine

  • Roast the Aubgerines and the garlic in the oven for 30 minutes at 180 Celsius (350F), then turn it down to 140 (275F) degrees.
  • When the Aubergines are nice and soft take them out and cut them in half.
  • Use a spoon to scoop out the soft flesh into a plastic bowl and mash in the roasted garlic.
  • Mix well and season with olive oil and salt et c’est tout!

Presentation

  • Fill each of the dips into a nice bowl and serve with roasted ciabatta slices, breadsticks and some cut up raw vegetables such as carrots, pepper and cucumber.
