Baba Ganoush

Baba Ganoush healthy and delicious Middle-Eastern eggplant dip which takes just few simple ingredients and almost no effort to make.

Ingredients:

1 large eggplant
1 tbsp of tahini
2 cloves of garlic
Lemon juice
Parsley
Salt
Pepper
Olive oil

Method:

Make some holes all over the eggplant using the fork and put it into the oven for 35-45 minutes(200 Celsius), or until fully baked.

Leave it to cool down, and then cut in half and scoop out the flesh(dismiss the excess water). Blend it together with garlic, tahini, lemon juice and olive oil, season with some salt and pepper to taste and mix with chopped parsley. Serve with the warm pita bread.

To make it even better you may cook the eggplant over the open fire or even gas stove. It will give the dish a bit smoky, charcoal taste.
