Baba Ganoush

At its simplest, our original Baba Ganoush recipe is made with eggplant, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and salt. With some ground cumin, smoked paprika and fresh parsley, we take baba ganoush to the next level. Now add tiny cubes of a red bell pepper, red onion and some pomegranate seeds and it’s perfect.

Baba ganoush is similar to hummus, but it uses grilled or fried eggplant instead of chickpeas. Both dips come from the eastern Mediterranean and are often served with flatbread and raw, crunchy vegetables. You can use Baba Ganoush – as a salad variation, dip or spread.

Thoughts on how to make the best Baba Ganoush

There are some considerations when it comes to Baba Ganoush. First: Are you grilling the eggplant or frying it?

Fry your eggplant
I don’t have a grill at home so I roasted my eggplants in the oven and it turned out great. So you don’t necessarily need a grill for Baba Ganoush.

For that grilled flavor you can cut the aubergines in half and for caramelized delights, roast them cut-side down. The use of smoked paprika powder also provides additional smoky flavor.

If you’re toasting the eggplants, waiting until they’ve collapsed will allow you to concentrate their flavor and ensure your dip turns out silky smooth. Peeling the skin off is not a good method, scraping out the inside of the eggplant works better.

extract moisture
Another consideration is how to get as much moisture out of the eggplant as possible. Luckily, our roasting method (cutting in half) has already helped eliminate much of it. Just let the eggplant sit in a colander for a few minutes. Stir every now and then to release even more.

how do we stir it up
Do you mix the dip by hand or do you put it in the food processor? While I’m a big fan of my food processor, it’s not necessary for this recipe. Baba ganoush traditionally has some texture, and roasted eggplants fall apart easily enough to stir with a fork.

Salt well
One last tip is to salt baba ganoush generously. Eggplants are naturally slightly bitter and salt reduces this. This dip isn’t quite epic until it’s properly seasoned with salt.
