It’s winter and eggplants are very much in season (no pun intended…)
So, I bring to a classic recipe from my childhood – baba ganoush. This is a simple and basic recipe (JUST 4 INGREDIENTS) that you could custom to your tastes, add tomatoes, cilantro, nuts, etc… but for me this is just perfect. Pair it with pita bread, a slice of toast drenching in olive oil, top with an avocado and lettuce, whatever you like!
I roast the eggplant on an open flame, but if that’s not do-able for you, you can place slices of eggplant to roast in the oven at 200C for 20 minutes or so. Then peel off the skin and place everything together into the food processor to make into semi-chunky dip
