The first thing we will have to do is wash the eggplants well and remove the skin. Once ready we will have to cut them into small dice, place them on a tray, put the garlic and put them in the oven to roast them. The ideal temperature is that they are about 200 degrees and we must take them out when we see that they have softened enough to make our eggplant pate.


Once we see that the eggplants are soft we must remove them from the oven and let them cool; then we will have to mix all the ingredients in a bowl, salt and pepper to taste and pour the tablespoons of olive oil. Now we just have to crush it all until we get a thick and homogeneous dough.
