Ingredients

Directions

Pita Chips: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut pita pockets into eighths and spread onto a sheet pan. Bake for about 10 minutes or until crispy. Remove from oven and set aside.

Dip: Place eggplant on top of stove burner with the flame on high. Turn, using tongs, until eggplant is completely blackened. This process will sweeten and soften the flesh. Remove from heat once blackened and scrape off and discard charred skin.

Place eggplant in a large microwave-safe dish and add the raisins, lemon juice, and chili garlic sauce. Mash all ingredients together with a potato masher or large spoon until well blended and smooth. Cover dish with plastic wrap and puncture wrap with a fork once or twice to allow a vent for steam. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir in basil and mint.

Transfer dip to an attractive serving dish and top with green onions and peanuts. Serve with pita chips.
