Roasted Eggplant and A Creamy Yogurt Dressing

Changing things up with this eggplant recipe! I’ve really only had eggplant when I eat eggplant Parmesan so I got creative with this dish. Roasted whole eggplant is so delicious and the crispy chickpeas are a great addition. Plus, who doesn’t like some homemade creamy dressing to bring all the ingredients together?
