Baba Ganoush- Eggplant Dip
This post may contain affiliate links.
Baba Ganoush is a simple vegan eggplant dip made of 4 ingredients: eggplant, lemon juice, garlic, and Tahini paste. To make this Baba Ganoush recipe, you start by grilling a whole egg plant until soft and cooked through, then you peel it and mash it with garlic, salt, lemon juice and Tahini paste.
Baba Ganoush is prepared similarly to Hummus, you basically substitute eggplant for chickpeas. This Baba Ganoush eggplant dip is the perfect snack, side dish or party appetizer.
I prefer to to grill my eggplant whole, but some people roast it in the oven, or on a gas top stove, either way works just fine. When mashing the grilled eggplant, a fork or potato masher works best because you retain the chunky the eggplant texture.
What Do you Need to Make Baba Ganoush:
- Whole eggplant
- Lemon juice
- Tahini paste
You can use Baba Ganoush like you would hummus—as a dip or spread. Ready to make some?!
