“This is a healthy and delicious Middle Eastern recipe that can be used as a dip with pita bread or served as a side dish. Sometimes I like to add parsley to this dish. Just chop up the parsley with the other ingredients. It makes it look pretty and taste good! Enjoy!”

  1. Pierce the eggplant 4 or 5 times with the tip of a paring knife. Microwave on High for 6 to 8 minutes until softened, then place on a plate, and allow to cool to room temperature.
  2. Peel off the skin and stem, discard. Roughly chop the eggplant and place into the bowl of a blender along with the tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil. Puree until smooth, adding water if needed to make a thick paste; season to taste with salt.

I really missed the smokey flavor that I'm use to in Baba Ghanoush. I thought it was on the bland side. Here are two ways I found that can add additional flavor. The first way is to just grill or saute slices or the eggplant before blending. Make sure you cook it until it is a dark brown. The other way (best) is to bake the whole eggplant with skin and all until the outside is chard. Then remove the skin and blend. The fist gives a light smokey flavor and the second method gives a full smokey flavor that just adds so much to the recipe.

Perfect traditional recipe! This tastes just like the baba ghanoush at my favorite lebanese restaurant, where the owners are FROM Lebanon, where Baba Ghanoush comes from. :) Only thing I'd add is maybe some chopped parsley and pine nuts to garnish!

Increased the Tahini to 3 tbls, reduced the olive oil to 1/6 cup, and used 1 tsp garlic. Pureed in a blender, it was creamy with a hint of garlic. Awesome.
