EGGPLANT CREAM

A luscious cream eggplant that takes inspiration from Moroccan cuisine.
To avoid monotony of texture I added raisins that its sweetness contrast with spicy taste of the cream  adding chewiness and to give a crunchy note, we can spread this cream on the “Crackers amaranth”.
The cream is perfect on crackers, as an accompaniment to a vegetable vinaigrette, but also goes well with white meat and cheese.
