Baba Ghanoush
What is it? The most wonderful cracker dip, the most flavorful bread spread, a totally fantastic veggie dunk! This stuff is great - but if you like garlic - add a few extra cloves!


  • 1 medium sized eggplant
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 3-4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tablespoons minced parsley

Pre-heat broiler. Prick eggplant with a fork, place on foil-lined baking tray and broil. When skin gets charred, turn 1/4 of a turn, continue till all is charred and inside is soft and mushy. Peel away charred skin. Rinse quickly to remove any charred bits, pat dry. In a processor, combine everything but the parsley. Blend until smooth.
