Beet Hummus

For Serving

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Brush the eggplant with some olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Put them, cut side down, onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for about 40 minutes or until they are tender. 
  2. To make the beet hummus, put all the ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth. Taste and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add more olive oil, if needed, to reach desired consistency. 
  3. To serve, put the eggplants onto serving plates. Spoon the beet hummus over the top. Sprinkle with the pomegranate seeds and sesame seeds. Add arugula.
