This little appetizer idea is great for brunch or any party. It's light and creamy and refreshing.

You can also use butter instead of the olive oil to kick up the umami flavor. You could also garnish this dish with a bit of parsley or basil.

This dish is great with a chilled white wine. You could go oaky. For example, an oaked Chardonnay would be nice. But, we think an aged white wine would be even better. The nuttiness of the tahini would pair nicely with the nuttiness in these older wines. If you can find and unfiltered one, that's even better.

If you have a red wine you like best, try this recipe with the rosé version. But, our suggestion is to lean towards a heavier rosé, one made from a heavy red grape.

1 large potato
1 small eggplant
1 onion
1/4 cups white flour
2/3 cup dried chickpeas
1/2 tsp salt
