Baba Ganouj (VG/GF)



  • 2 medium eggplants
  • 3 tablespoons Tahini paste
  • Juice from 1 freshly squeezed lemon or 1 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)

Method :

1. Roast the eggplants in the oven on medium heat, or on a BBQ grill for about 30 minutes.

2. Place in a mixing bowl and cover with a plastic wrap. While eggplants are still hot (not too

hot so you don’t burn your hands), peel them.

3. Strain the water from the eggplants by placing them on a colander for about 10 minutes.

This step is important so you don’t get a liquid Baba Ghanouj.

4. Add eggplants and all ingredients in a food processor and let run for 2-3 minutes until

you get a paste. OR add everything into a mixing bowl and smash with fork, and mix

very well, until all combined.

5. Place Baba Ghanouj paste into a serving plate, garnish with any/all of the following: olive

oil, chopped parsley, sumac spice or chili powder, salted pickles...etc.

6. Serve cold as an appetizer, with a side of Pita bread.
