With an eggplant left over from last week’s Moussaka, what was I going to make? Why, baba ganoush, of course!
Baba Ganoush (pronounced baw-baw ga-noosh). Isn’t that fun to say? Say it again. “Baba Ganoush!” This creamy, smoky dip is popular throughout the Middle East. The traditional ingredients are eggplant, tahini, lemon juice and garlic. The flavor is reminiscent of hummus, only it’s made with eggplant instead of garbanzo beans. Enjoy this dip with toasted pita bread wedges or vegetables.
