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.
