It's even healthy! It's made from aubergine, tahini (which is made from sesame seeds), and olive oil, which are heart-healthy fats, and even lemon juice has minimal amounts of vitamin C.

Baba Ganoush vs Hummus

  • hummus It is a popular dish in the Middle East. Made from cooked chickpea puree and mixed with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic.
  • Slime ganoush It comes mainly from the Meditteranean. Made from cooked and processed eggplant, mixed with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, garlic and parsley.

Either way, these two dives are healthy alternatives to prepackaged and store-bought options that are delicious and easy to make.

How to make Baba Ganoush

The base for slime ganoush is roasted or roasted eggplant for a smooth cream on the inside. Cooking on the grill will produce a slightly smoky flavor. In this easy baba ganoush recipe, I use baked eggplant to make it easier! To get started, preheat the oven and grease a baking sheet with the pan or parchment paper.

  1. To bake: Chop each eggplant with a fork and bake until smooth. Cool the eggplant completely and remove the peel (it should slide easily into a couple of large pieces).
  2. Mixture: Place all ingredients (except olive oil) in a food processor and process until smooth and evenly mixed.
  3. Mount: Add the parsley and salt. Put baba ganoush in a serving bowl or plate, make a well in the center and pour the olive oil in the center.

Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil, a pinch of chopped red pepper flakes for extra color and flavor!

  • Thaw: Put in the fridge or on the counter to defrost overnight.
  • Refresh: Add a little tahini to thicken if necessary, and a little lemon juice and salt to sharpen flavors.
