We all tend to get ‘stuck in a rut’ with our day-to-day meal ideas. Eating out and visiting friends can often be helpful in opening up new ideas. Many of these ideas and recipes can be adapted for a yeast-free and sugar-free anti-Candida diet, and this Aubergine Dip is one such dish.
A number of years ago a Persian friend took us for dinner to his favourite restaurant, specialising in authentic Persian cuisine. He chose from the menu for all of us – all we had to do was eat! Generally I have found the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern diets to offer a good cross section of foods which are allowed on the ‘anti-Candida’ diet, and this delicious meal was no exception.
One dish I particularly remember and have made on a number of occasions, having obtained instructions from my friend. It is a quick and easy recipe for a warm dip, based on aubergines. Use it as a sauce sprinkled with pumpkin seeds and served over cauliflower rice, or as a warm dip, scooped up with cauliflower flat bread.
