Baba Ganousch

Member of the appetizer academy, I salute you!! 😉

Here is a recipe that was missing on the blog…

My baba ganousch.

I recently made a baba ganousch with tahini, the oriental version. Here is a simple one, a classic and easy to make recipe of baba ganousch.

You can enjoy it with gressini, blinis, a nice slice of French baguette, pita bread, falafels, grilled meat or fish, meatballs, etc… Those mashed eggplants are simply delicious.

I chose the zebra eggplants because I find them more instagramable… 😉 But you can obviously take the usual purple ones. The spices, olive oil and lemon juice will spice the baba ganousch up and make it very smooth, perfect element for your appetizer table or buffets.

You can cook it in advance. For an optimal preserving, place a cling film on the surface of your baba ganousch and set it aside in your fridge.

The utensils:

A cooking tray,

Baking paper,

A grater,

A lemon juice squeezer

And a blender.

Shall we make baba ganousch?

The recipe, Chef!

      La texture va dépendre de la qualité et de la variété d’aubergine…
