Baba Ghanouj


  • 1 medium eggplant
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 2 or 3 large cloves of garlic
  • 2 heaped tbs of tahini
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Chopped parsley to garnish


Step 1

Turn oven on to 175° C and cook eggplant for one hour.

Step 2

Once cool strip off skin and cut into chunks.

Step 3

Blend eggplant with lemon juice, garlic, tahini, olive oil and salt. Push down ingredients if necessary and stop when smooth.

Step 4

Put into a bowl and sprinkle over chopped parsley. Then drizzle with 1 tbs olive oil. If you want to halve the recipe you can. Alternatively you can also slice eggplant, and fry in an oiled pan. Just cook on both sides with the lid on. Then continue as original recipe halved.

Very tasty with fresh bread or cut veges.
