Baba Ganouche

Baba Ganouche is a yummy eggplant dip. You bake the eggplant in the oven and add a few other ingredients, that's it.

You will need:

  • 2 small eggplants
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1 lemon (juiced)
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 1/4 tsp crushed chili flakes
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • salt/pepper
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil

Step 1: slice the eggplant in half and brush with olive oil. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour. The eggplant should be soft once cooked.

Step 2: with a spoon scrap out the interior flesh and add to a small bowl. Add tahini, lemon juice, garlic, chili flakes, cumin, salt, pepper, parsley and 2 tbsp olive oil. Mix and taste it. Add more salt and pepper or lemon. 

When you serve it drizzle a bit more olive oil and serve with pita bread.
