Sandra’s BlogTalk Recipe Entry January 07, 2009 : Baba Ghanoush

Baba Ghanoush Recipe (Eggplant Hummus)
Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes


  • 1 large eggplant
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained (garbanzo beans)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 T. tahini
  • dash sea salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 T. fresh chopped parsley (optional)


Preheat oven to 400.

Slice eggplant in half, and score crosswise and salt, set aside for 20 minutes. Before placing in oven, take a paper towel and dab off excess liquid.

Place eggplant in glass casserole and roast in 400 degree oven for approximately 45 minutes, or until soft.

Allow to cool slightly, then scoop out inside of eggplant, leaving skin behind.
In a blender or food processor, combine eggplant and remaining ingredients, except oil and parsley, until smooth. Mixture will be somewhat thick. Slowly incorporate olive oil until well mixed. Mix in chopped parsley by hand. Serves eight.
Enjoy with veggies, pita, or as a sandwich spread.

    It’s a great time of year to be making baba ghanoush with eggplant from the garden or farmers markets.
