Sue's Baba Ghanoush

"This is a healthy and delicious Middle Eastern recipe that can be used as a dip with pita bread or served as a side dish. Sometimes I like to add parsley to this dish. Just chop up the parsley with the other ingredients. It makes it look pretty and taste good! Enjoy!"

  1. Pierce the eggplant 4 or 5 times with the tip of a paring knife. Microwave on High for 6 to 8 minutes until softened, then place on a plate, and allow to cool to room temperature.
  2. Peel off the skin and stem, discard. Roughly chop the eggplant and place into the bowl of a blender along with the tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil. Puree until smooth, adding water if needed to make a thick paste; season to taste with salt.

Perfect traditional recipe! This tastes just like the baba ghanoush at my favorite lebanese restaurant, where the owners are FROM Lebanon, where Baba Ghanoush comes from. :) Only thing I'd ad...

Increased the Tahini to 3 tbls, reduced the olive oil to 1/6 cup, and used 1 tsp garlic. Pureed in a blender, it was creamy with a hint of garlic. Awesome.

I made this exactly as stated. The garlic was overwhelming. I think next time I would try only 1/2 of what is called for. I could not get around the garlic taste (and I love garlic) so sadly I ...

So easy and very good. But, like a previous reviewer, the garlic was overwhelming. And I love garlic! I will make this again but cook the garlic slightly in the olive oil.

this reminds me of the baba ganoush that my grandmother made while I was growing up... AWESOME!

I made this recipe this afternonn with our fresh eggplant! It is delicious, I did after skimming over the reviews add a few drops of liquid smoke to the eggplant when I microwaved it and let it...

This was a tad too tangy or maybe bitter for our liking. I would make it again next time I had an eggplant to use up, either scraping out the eggplant seeds and/or using less lemon juice.

Made exactly as stated and the garlic was much too much. I was disappointed. I kept adding more salt to cut the garlic flavor. No one in my family would eat it.
