Baba Ganoush is a traditional Middle Eastern dish that’s usually served as a dip. It’s made from eggplant, tahini, garlic, and lemon juice. The eggplant roasts in the oven and is then blended with the other ingredients to make a rich and velvety dip. It's the perfect finger food for parties, and it's also good as a sandwich filling. You can use it to make a great vegetarian sandwich or to bulk up a falafel sandwich with a little extra protein.

Have you ever looked at the recipe for Baba Ghanoush and thought it would take hours to make? Or maybe you thought it would be too difficult. Well, that will never happen here! In this quick and easy Baba Ghanoush recipe, we'll show you how to make a delicious dip or spread for your family in less than 30 minutes.

Baba ghanoush is one of our favorite things to eat. It’s sort of like hummus and makes a yummy smooth and creamy dip. We love pairing it with fresh vegetables on the side or as an addition to a hearty macro bowl. Baba ghanoush is very simple to make, but does require some time to cook the eggplant.
