This dip goes great with everything, but it is always a big hit at parties, especially when served with hummus, tabouli and pita bread. If you're a big fan of tahini, add more according to your taste. Enjoy!

We didn't like this Baba Ghanoush. There shouldn't be yogurt in the dip...not to mention the teraki sauce. There is another baba ghanoush on this website that lists tahini paste and sesame seeds. We are going to give that a try. Read More

This recipe was a nice surprise given I don't really like eggplant or yogurt. It's creamy yummy! I pureed the eggplant for a smoother texture. Read More

While many Baba Ghanoush recipes do not call for yogurt it is not that uncommon either. I enjoyed this dip. However being a garlic lover I did add a bit more garlic. Read More

I omitted the teriyaki sauce. We made it without the yogurt at first but after tasting it decided to add the yogurt. Quite delish! I used 4 cloves of mashed garlic because we like garlic. Read More

Very good. I did only one eggplant and skipped the teriyaki. I will definitely use this as a base recipe again. Oh I also put the eggplant in the blender to make it smoother. Read More
