Ingredients

  • 3 medium eggplants (about 3 pounds total)
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons pomegranate molasses (chefswarehouse.com)
  • 1 teaspoon minced or finely grated garlic, plus 3 cloves, very thinly sliced lengthwise
  • Coarse salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roast eggplants on a baking sheet until collapsed and very tender, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

  2. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Peel, and discard skins. Transfer flesh to a colander, and let drain for 15 minutes. Finely chop eggplant, and transfer to a bowl. Stir in 3 tablespoons oil, the molasses, minced garlic, and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt.

  3. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil and the sliced garlic in a skillet over medium heat until garlic is golden, 6 to 7 minutes. Drizzle garlic oil over dip, and garnish with garlic chips.
