Eggplant Hummous

eggplant-hummous-2When asking “which came first, the chick or the egg?” surely they were talking about chickpeas and eggplants. And yet when it comes to our supersonic blend of two absolute legends of flavour, the answer is still just as elusive – it really is a dead-heat of deliciousness. Char grilled eggplant getting cozy with the freshest, locally sourced chickpeas, and folded through the smoothest tahini in the business – does it really matter which came first?


  • Everything hummous can do, this can do too, just more eggplanty!
  • Sensational with toasted pita bread/Turkish bread for a moreish snack.
  • Unbelievably good on baked white fish.
  • Generously combine with your favourite salad or mix through vegetables to give a creamy flavoursome punch!
