Aubergine Pâté ingredientsEggplants are rich in fiber and a great source of vitamin K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, potassium and manganese. They are also effective antioxidants and help lower LDL cholesterol levels.

This aubergine pâté  is creamy, flavorful and easy to prepare, and makes a filling and nutritious appetizer that you can serve with crackers, pita bread, or celery stalks! We hope you love it!

Ingredients:

  • 2 rosted eggplants
  • 1 cup of black or green pitted olives
  • 1 green onion

  • Paprika, pepper, and salt
  • 1 tablespoon of tahini (optional)
