Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Arrange oven racks so you have one low and one high in the oven.
  2. Cut a shallow slit along the side of the eggplant and place into a baking dish.
  3. Roast in preheated oven on the lower rack until the eggplant is completely shrunken and soft, about 40 minutes. Move dish to higher rack and continue baking until the skin is charred, about 5 minutes more. Let eggplant cool until cool enough to handle.
  4. Peel and discard skin from eggplant. Put eggplant into a bowl; add tahini, garlic, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, and salt. Stir until ingredients are evenly mixed. Drizzle olive oil over the baba ghanoush and garnish with parsley.

I love Baba Ghanoush and this one was very good! I used more lemon juice than called for. I had a hard time just mixing this up in a bowl, so I threw it in the food processor and pulsed it until it was the consistency that I wanted, which worked great. Spicy, garlicky and lemony...a perfect balance...I will be making this again! Thanks for sharing. :)

Easy to make and tastes great! Makes a good sandwich spread instead of mayo as well

Good recipe. Real ingredients. Much much better than the store bought stuff. I prefer more tahini though... personal preference.

Excellent recipe. Added less tahini And more lemon juice to suit our tastes better. Seems like it has lots of potential for different twists of flavor :) yum!

I used a food processor as well and substituted lime juice for lemon juice as it was all I had in the house. I also added between 6-8 sun-dried tomatoes. Delicious!
