Why I Love This Recipe

This is a Greek version of Baba Ghanoush (Which I believe is Lebanese or Syrian)... Otherwise known as Eggplant Hummus.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 large eggplant (you need 1 lb of roasted flesh)
1 can garbanzo beans, drained
4 cloves garlic
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 1/2 TB Tahini (Sesame Paste)
2 tsp dried dill weed
Pinch of Salt
1/4 cup olive oil
1 Scallion, finely minced (White and light green parts)
2 TB Italian Parsley; Chopped


Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Slice eggplant in half, lengthwise.

Lay slices side down on a lightly oiled rimmed baking sheet.

Roast in oven for about 40-50 minutes depending on the size of the eggplant, the flesh should be soft… just like roasting a squash.

Remove from oven and allow to cool for 30 minutes.

Scoop out the flesh and place it in a food processor.

Add the Garlic, garbanzos, lemon juice, tahini dill weed and salt.

Process until smooth, but thick.

Remove mixture from food processor to a work bowl, and incorporate the olive oil slowly, by hand.

Fold in the minced scallions.

Smear onto a small plate and sprinkle with chopped parsley.

Serve with warmed flat bread and/or vegetables or just eat it with a spoon like I do…
