Recipe Directions for Perfect Baba Ganoush

  1. Roast the eggplant over a kitchen cooker. Be thorough.

  2. Put aside for 15-20 minutes. Let the eggplant chill up a little, over a plate or a strainer. The eggplant liquids should be fully drained before it is ready to use.

  3. Strip and clean the eggplant. Peel off the shell and and put over a cutting board.

  4. Chop the eggplant. Do NOT use a food processor. Chop the eggplant by hand, using a good knife. Use large, swift, hammer-like moves. With this traditional technique,the eggplants? texture will be preserved.

  5. Add all other ingredients. Yeah, you?re right, I took this shot only because it looks beautiful.

  6. Mix Gently, taste. Is something missing? More lemon juice? A little salt maybe? You should take your time. Also, after some time the flavors will change a bit, so if you don?t eat it right away you should taste it again.
