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,

Ingredients:

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

Process: 

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.

Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large Eggplant
  • 1 large Cucumber
  • 1 medium sized Tomato
  • 1 large pepper
  • Parsley
  • Thyme
  • Feta cheese
  • ½ cup Cooked Quinoa
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and place your thinly sliced eggplant on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and then bake for about 25-30 minutes or until golden brown

Cook quiona as directed on the package. Then add your veggies and lemon olive oil dressing. Mix well and let your salad sit for about 15 minutes before serving (this is the secret since you want all ingredients to be very well combined and your eggplant to soak the dressing). Bon appetite 🙂
