Did you know that making your own baba ganoush can be done in like 15-20 minutes?! It's great if your bored with hummus OR perfect to have them both when you're having friends over as a starter or snack while watching a movie! For the real health-geeks under us you can boil some green beans and cool them in ice water and dip them in the aba ganoush! I really can't believe that something THIS creamy is made WITHOUT any dairy involved! So yes Hello Vegans..go knock yourself out with this easy peasy recipe! ;)
- 1 eggplant
- 1 super small glove of garlic
- 3 spoons of lemon juice
- 4 spoons of Tahin (sesame paste)
- salt & pepper
As you can see there aren't many steps to follow..just grill your eggplant on open fire..yup..you got that right..OPEN FIRE! please watch out your perfectly manicured nails won't burn! (make sure the eggplant is grilled on all sides evenly, on low heat) After 13 minutes the eggplant should be ready..you'll smell the bbq scent! Mmmm Love it!
Put the eggplant in a plastic bag or leave it to rest in some foil. After 5 minutes you can peel of the skin by using a bit of tissue. Get rid of the green top and mix the eggplant with all the rest of the ingredients using your immersion blender, if you don't have that, blend it all using your food processor. Add some salt & pepper to taste and let it cool before serving it.
