When I was a contestant on The Big Allotment Challenge, we were tasked with making dips using our own allotment produce in Week 3. Baba Ghanouj is easily my favorite dip and the main reason I go out for Lebanese food... mmmm.... This is a lovely smoky aubergine dip that is quite easy to make and tastes delicious. Serve it with pitta bread or vegetable crudités.
Ever tried this?
To get that smoky taste, a whole aubergine is grilled over the hob. To see how it's done, watch this video and read the original recipe here (SBS Australia). This is where I learnt how to make Baba Ghanouj.
Tahini is paste made from ground sesame seeds. I used Tahini by Sainsbury's which is available from Sainsbury's.
Serve with pita bread or vegetable crudités.
