Jewish Recipes --> Recipes --> Baba Ganoush Recipes

Baba ganoush is a common Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dip with a creamy, somewhat smoky flavor. It is usually eaten with pita bread although naan or a crispy flatbread also work well.
Recipe Ingredients:
  • 1 medium-large eggplant, any variety, 1 to 1 pounds
  • 2 tablespoons raw tahini
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • tsp salt
  • Paprika or cayenne pepper, as a garnish
Directions

Roast the eggplant. This can be done in a variety of ways, but the flesh should be fully cooked and the skin should be burned and falling off easily. An effective method is to prick the eggplant and place it a few inches under a broiler, turning it as the exposed skin blackens, about every 3-4 minutes. Place a pan underneath to catch the juices, and discard them.
Scrape off the eggplant skin. It's all right if you miss a few burned bits.
Finely chop or blend the eggplant flesh with the rest of the ingredients. The consistency should be smooth. Reserve a bit of the olive oil, and drizzle that over the top. Sprinkle with some paprika or cayenne.(I use lemon instead of lime juice.)
 

 

Baba Ganoush -- Kosher Dips -- Eggplant

Cooking Tips:   Cooking tips: To infuse eggplants with a smoky flavor in the kitchen, wrap a large eggplant in a double thickness of foil and sets it over high flames on top of the stove, turning often until the skin is charred and the flesh has melted into a creamy pulp.
