Eggplant & Beetroot Dip

Eggplant & Beetroot Dip
I was going to make baba ghanoush, but thought I might as well throw a beetroot in the oven in the oven as well, and that turned out to be a good idea. This dip or condiment (I eat it on toast and on raw crackers) is amazingly light and fluffy (no need to use any oil), with a more gentle beetroot flavour than a straight beetroot dip normally has. Yet it is super easy to prepare.
Oh, and the flowers, calendula on the side and borage on top, are all edible :-)
