Baba Ghanoush (A Mediterranean Style Eggplant Dip)

Makes 2-1/2 cups


2 eggplants (about 1-1/2 pounds each)

1 tablespoon Tahini

Juice of 1 lemon

2 garlic cloves, minced

3 teaspoons chopped flat leaf parsley

2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint leaves

Salt and pepper to taste

2 tablespoons Olive Oil Divine’s Lemon Pepper Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Olive Oil Divine's Italian Seasoning

1/4 teaspoon cumin for garnish


Preheat oven to 425°F.

Pierce the eggplants in several places with the tines of a fork. Wrap them separately in aluminum foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake until soft, about 45 minutes.

Unwrap the eggplants; let stand until cool enough to handle. Halve them lengthwise; carefully remove the flesh, discarding the seeds and the skin.

Coarsely chop the eggplant flesh and place it in a medium bowl. Add the Tahini, lemon juice, garlic, 2 teaspoons parsley, Italian seasoning mint and salt and pepper; mix well.

Place the mixture in a serving bowl, drizzle olive oil over the top, and sprinkle with the remaining teaspoon of parsley and the cumin.

Serve at room temperature.

Notes: This dip makes a great vegan sauce for dipping veggies or pita bread. This is best if made a day ahead. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Bring to room temperature before serving.
