WWDH - Baba ghanoush



This week for Wednesday with Donna Hay, Sarah chose a popular Middle Eastern dip - baba ghanoush, on p86 of Modern Classics I.  Baba Ghanoush is a dip made from roasted eggplant, tahini, garlic and olive oil.  I roasted my eggplant in the oven rather than on the stovetop.

I found this homemade version of baba ghanoush tastier than its commercial counterparts.  I would cut down on the garlic if I made it again, as it seemed a little overwhelming, but otherwise, I really enjoyed this dip.

To see what Margaret, Sarah and Kayte thought of this dish, visit their websites.

I really liked this...and those crackers you have pictured with yours look really tasty, perfect for this dip/spread!

I'm glad you liked it and I agree that this recipe was much better than any store-bought version. I think that has proved to be true for all the dips I have made in the past. Just think about the difference between jarred salsa and one you make at home. The former is like a dark brownish red sludge, which the latter is like flavour fireworks in your mouth!

I never knew this was a dip! I feel like a doofus!

I've never really eaten an eggplant I liked. Maybe this is the way to approach it. Looks tasty!!!
