Authentic Baba Ganoush
I love to add a big bowl of this Authentic Baba Ganoush to my Middle Eastern mezze selections. Mezze is such a great dinner option for vegans – the selection of small dishes is perfect for sharing and can make a substantial meal when accompanied by flatbread.
To make this dip, take cooled, roasted eggplant and garlic and beat together with tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, and paprika. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve in a bowl with some paprika and a splash of olive oil for garnish. You can eat this baba ganoush as a dip with pitas or flatbread or as a side dish of the main course. Before serving, stir in pomegranate seeds and cilantro to give this Baba Ganoush an extra fresh flavor and texture.
