Baba Ghanoush 

Happy Long Weekend everyone. I know that a lot of you have been BBQing and I thought I would share this amazing and BBQ friendly recipe with you all. Baba Ghanoush is a stable appetizer in Mediterranean cuisine. It is versatile and can be enjoyed with a variety of main dishes but mostly with BBQ.   


So here is how to make it,


1 large eggplant 

3 garlic gloves

1/4 cup tahini sauce ( use more for thickening)

1/4 cup yogurt

1 tablespoon lemon juice or to taste

1/2 tsp salt or to taste 

1 tablespoon Olive oil 

Parsley for garnish 

Paprika for garnish


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees C and with a fork or a knife, prick your eggplant on all sides and wrap it with a foil. Place your eggplant on a baking sheet and grill for about 55-60 mins. When done, let it cool down for about 15 mins and then start peeling off the grilled eggplant skin. Place the eggplant in a food processing machine. Add the rest of your ingredients. Process until all ingredients are well combined but DON’T over-process as you don’t want a very runny consistency and if you get a runny consistency use tahini sauce to thicken your mixture. Garnish your Baba Ghanoush with chopped parsley, paprika and olive oil.
