About Vegan Chocolate Eggplant Dip

One of the enduring myths about chocolate or cocoa powder is that it can be used only as an ingredient in desserts . Of course there is a exception like a Mole or something equally unheard of.
However given the enormous nutritional benefits of cocoa, it makes sense to include it in everyday cooking. That too in a savoury form so that one does not end up consuming excess sugar.
This easy to prepare dip is something one can relish everyday. Finger foods or snacks, the rich bitter sweet notes of this dip will leave you feeling blissfully content.
