Smokey eggplant and tahini dip that is delicious with warm pita, pita chips or tortilla chips! Cook the eggplant on a gas burner or outdoor grill for the best smokey flavor, but it can be prepared in the oven.

How to Make BABA GANOUSH

Step-by-Step

  1. Roast/Char eggplants over a gas burner, grill or broiler. Turn it slowly over all sides until all skin is blackened and eggplant deflates and softens.

    I do mine on my biggest gas burner, turning 1/8 turn (using large tongs) every 2-3 minutes. I like mine quite smokey tasting, so I let it get well charred-this takes around 10-15 minutes.
  2. When eggplant are just cool enough to handle, carefully peel all the charred skin off.

    Place the innard eggplant in a medium bowl.

    Mash eggplant as desired. I sometimes use a stick blender to break it down.
  3. Stir in the tahini, lemon juice, salt, olive oil, and parsley.

    Give this a dusting of smoked paprika and a drizzle of olive oil for a decorative finish!

    Serve with pita bread, pita chips, greek flat bread, or crudite.
