In this demonstration, CIA Chef Bill Briwa makes a dip with roasted eggplant, almonds, and yogurt. First, he roasts the eggplant over a flame until it is soft and completely blackened on the outside. This process can range from a few minutes to 10--12 minutes, and imparts a wonderful smoky flavor to the dip. While the eggplant is roasting, he prepares the yogurt and almond butter mixture, which is then added to the mashed eggplant flesh.
