Baba ganoush, a Middle Eastern spread and dip, is similar to hummus, but is made with eggplant instead of chickpeas (garbanzo beans). This vegetarian and vegan recipe is particularly hummus-like, since it uses some chickpeas for a thicker texture.

Recipe Ingredients for Baba ganoush

1 large eggplant
15 oz chickpeas, drained
3 cloves garlic
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 tbsp tahini
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley

Recipe Directions for Baba ganoush

  1. Slice eggplant in half, and roast in 400 degree oven for approximately 45 minutes, or until soft.

  2. Allow to cool slightly, then scoop out inside of eggplant, leaving skin behind.

  3. In a blender or food processor, combine eggplant and remaining ingredients, except oil and parsley, until smooth. Mixture will be somewhat thick. Slowly incorporate olive oil until well mixed. Mix in chopped parsley by hand. Serves eight.

  4. Enjoy with veggies, pita, or as a sandwich spread. I like to spread some baba ghanoush in a flour tortilla and add lettuce, tomatoes and veggies for a sandwich wrap.
