Recipe: Baba Ganoush
Baba Ganoush (serves 4 as an appetiser/dip)
2 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp tahini
2 cloves garlic, crushed
½ tsp salt
1 tbsp olive oil (plus extra for garnish)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 black olive (for garnish if you want!)
1. Remove the ends of the aubergines and slices them into quarters lengthways. Place under a hot grill skin side up and the skin is charred and the flesh is browned. The flesh should be really nice and soft.
2. Peel off the skin and place flesh in a blender or food processor and blend. Blend in the lemon juice, then gradually add the tahini. Add the garlic and olive oil and blend. Season to taste, and spoon into a dish. Garnish with extra olive oil and a black olive, and serve!
