This delicious dip couldn't be any easier to make, and you'll find yourself serving it for dinner parties, movie nights, or even as a simple snack. Double the batch to always have some at the ready, as the dip lasts for up to 3 days in the fridge. All you have to do is roast some eggplant and garlic in the oven, then blitz them in a food processor along with Greek yogurt, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon zest and juice, harissa paste, and salt until the dip is smooth. Just keep in mind that harissa pastes can vary greatly in spiciness, so be sure to give yours a taste before adding it to the food processor.
