Getting tired of hummus? Here is a DELICIOUS alternative! I love baba ghanoush and when I had some extra eggplants on hand I decided to make some. This baba ghanoush recipe is super yummy and great to have on hand when you are tired of hummus.
3 medium-sized eggplants
1/2 cup tahini
1 tsp coarse salt
3 tbsp lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
1/8 tsp chile powder
1 tbsp olive oil
a handful of flat leaf parsley or cilantro leaves
Preheat the oven to 375.
Prick the outside of the eggplants all over with a fork. Char the eggplants directly over the flame of a gas burner or grill. If you don’t have one, you can char them under the broiler. Turn the eggplants so that they are charred all over.
Place the eggplants on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 20-30 minutes until they are completely soft. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
Cut the eggplants in half, scrape out the pulp and place into the bowl of a food processor. Add in the other ingredients and pulse until combined. Taste and add additional salt or lemon, as needed.
Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil and some fresh herbs. Serve with pita, pita chips, or veggies.
21 Day Fixers: I would count this the same as hummus, even though it is mostly vegetable the tahini and olive oil make it more like a healthy fat.
