Baba Ganoush

Thank you David Lebovitz!  This Baba Ganoush was delicious and super easy.  My parents have a gas stove top so i had a great time charring the eggplant.  As an appetizer for 4 adults, i used only one medium sized eggplant and improvised a little…

  • 1 medium eggplant
  • 2 T creamy peanut butter (you can substitute any nut butter if you don’t have tahini on hand)
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 T+ 1 t lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, quartered
  • 1 t evoo
  • 2 T chopped parsley
  • 1/2 t red pepper flakes
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. prick eggplant and char over gas stove burner (so fun).
  3. roast in preheated oven for 20- 30 min (25 worked for me).
  4. cool eggplant, scoop out insides, and puree will all other ingredients in food processor till smooth.
  5. Add additional lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste.  Will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.
