Roasted Eggplant Spread Recipe: A healthy & tasty summer alternative to hummus

Wondering what to do with that eggplant?  You should turn it into a super simple and delicious healthy roasted eggplant spread.  I used farmer's market fresh ingredients to make this adapted version of Barefoot Contessa's Roasted Eggplant Spread Recipe.  She uses red peppers but I didn't have any so I used the peppers listed below.

Here's what you'll need:
1 medium eggplant
1 jalepano (seed and ribs removed to take the heat down)
2 sweet banana peppers
2 small red onions
2 cloves of garlic
Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Tomato Paste (I've been using the Bionaturae organic brand in a glass jar to avoid the BPA found in cans and it's great!)
Salt & Pepper

This spread reminds me of Tarantino's eggplant spread/dip they bring you when you sit down out at Tarantino's Italian Restaurant in Lincoln Park.  It's great with veggies, on bread or crackers or even on its own.
