Baba Ganoush is a silky, smoky eggplant dip that has a little tang from the tahini and lemon juice. It really hits all the right notes for a dip: creamy, tangy, and addicting!
My husband and I have been on a Mediterranean food bender. For the past, oh, 3 months we have tried the better part of the restaurants in Atlanta and have narrowed it down to two favorites! One happens to be 2 blocks away.
Sometimes we get the lamb gyro and other times the chicken shish kabob, but we always start with the Baba Ganoush!
A perfect baba ganoush is still a little chunky. I don’t like when it is completely smooth. It lacks texture, and we can’t have that!
This baba is delicious! Roasted eggplants are mashed with tahini, spices and lemon juice for an easy appetizer! The most time consuming part is roasting the eggplants, so make double, taste-test a little, refrigerate over night and then serve with pita chips or warmed pita bread slices! Easy.
This game day serve your friends something a little different!
The hardest part will be not eating it all before your guests arrive. Trust me, I know!
