Serves 4

Ingredients

Baba Ganoush Dip

  • 1 eggplant sliced
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to high or medium broil and place a rack at the top of the oven.
  • Place the sliced eggplant in a colander and sprinkle with salt. Let it sit for 10 minutes to drain excess liquid, then pat the eggplant dry between two towels.
  • Arrange the eggplant on the baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 10 minutes, turning once after 5 minutes. Add the garlic for a couple of minutes if you want to make it more flavorful.
  • Once the eggplant is softened and golden brown, remove it from the oven and let it cool slightly before peeling away most of the skin.
  • Add the flesh to a food processor along with the red pepper flakes, tahini, and lemon juice. Pulse to incorporate everything.
  • Taste and adjust to preferences, then serve with pita or veggies.

Notes

  • Once cooled, this dip can be stored in a lidded container in the fridge for about 4 days.
