Baba Ganoush

I made Baba Ganoush (Ghanoush) for my first time today. It turned out excellent. I will definitely make this again!

  • 1 large globe eggplant
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 2 tbls tahini
  • 2 tbls lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne (I’d suggest using cumin, I somehow didn’t have any on hand)

Pierce the eggplant a few times with a fork and bake at 450F for about 30 minutes or until soft. During this time, roast the garlic (cut off the tops and drizzle with oil, wrap in foil). Let the garlic and eggplant cool. When cool, pinch the garlic out of its skin and into a food processor. Next, cut the eggplant in half, lengthwise. Scoop the flesh out into the processor. Add the remaining ingredients and combine until smooth. Garnish with paprika and chives.
