Baba Ganoush is a delicious, vegan, smoky side dish/ dip from the Middle East.
Servings 6 people
- 3 large eggplants
- 4-5 garlic cloves
- 2 tbsp tahini paste
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley leaves
- Salt as per taste
Apply some olive oil on eggplants and char them over direct flame. You can also grill them in the oven for around 30 minutes at 200 degree Celsius or till they are perfectly cooked. Using direct flames give a very nice and authentic smoky flavor to the dish.
Once done, scoop out the flesh and keep aside, discard the skin. If cooked nicely the flesh will leave the skin very easily.
Put everything in a blender and make a paste.Take out in a bowl, drizzle some olive oil, cumin powder, paprika, zataar(optional) and enjoy with warm pita bread and Tabouleh
