Recipe Ingredients for Babaganoush (Eggplant) Dip

4 large eggplant
6 tablespoons lemon juice
4 tablespoons tahini
3 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 sprig Italian parsley

Recipe Directions for Babaganoush (Eggplant) Dip

  1. The first thing to remember is neither to peel the eggplant not to chop its stem.

  2. Pierce each side of the eggplants with a fork. Place the whole eggplants in the oven and roast them for about 45 minutes turning them over 2 or 3 times.

  3. The eggplants are done when the outer shell is blackened or charred, and the inside is soft.

  4. Allow to cool a little bit. Cut the aubergines open lengthwise with a knife, and scoop out the pulp with a spoon. Put the pulp in a mixing bowl and mash it into a puree with a fork or blender. Discard the skin.

  5. If you use a food processor, be careful not to liquidize the eggplant pulp.

  6. Peel the garlic. Use mortar and pestle to crush the peeled garlic with the salt into a smooth paste.

  7. Add the lemon juice and the tahini alternately to the mortar, mixing it well with the pestle or a wooden spoon.

  8. Add the tahini mixture to the eggplant puree and beat it gently but thoroughly until the babaganoush has a smooth consistency.

  9. Pour it onto a serving dish or platter.

  10. A moment before serving, garnish the baba ganoush with chopped parsley or parsley leaves.

  11. Serve chilled or at room temperature with olive oil, pitta bread, radishes, and green onions.
