Delicious Dips

Garden Dip

3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small onion, chopped
½ cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup chopped eggplant
½ cup peeled, chopped, fresh tomatoes
1 cup cooked dried beans
juice from ½ lemon
salt and pepper, to taste

  • In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the onion and green pepper and sauté until just tender. Add the eggplant, tomatoes, and beans and stir.
  • Heat on medium-low until juice forms. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for 15 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and the juices are blended.
  • Add the lemon juice and stir. Drain the liquid if the mixture becomes soupy.
  • Season with salt and pepper. Serve with pita bread.
  • Makes about 3½ cups.

TIP: “Cooked dried beans freeze well and will keep in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 6 months.”
