Ingredients:
- 1 medium raw eggplant
- 1 cup fresh basil, packed
- 10 green olives
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1/2 to 1 tsp. coarse salt (to taste)
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Cut eggplant in half lengthwise. Place eggplant halves cut-side down on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Roast until eggplant is soft (about 30 minutes). Cool and then remove inside flesh with a knife or spoon, trying to remove most of the seeds. Place in a food processor with all other ingredients and blend until combined. Add more salt, if desired.
