  • 2-3 medium eggplants
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp tahini (when in Uruguay I skip it because it costs a fortune)
  • garlic (option – I prefer the simple taste of roasted eggplant)
  • sea salt
  • 1 can chickpeas (optional if you’d like to make eggplant hummus, traditional baba ganouj is just roasted eggplant)

  • Slice eggplant into thin slices and bake or broil on a pan with a little oil and salt. Flip and brown other side if needed.
  • Once cooked place in blender olive oil, lemon juice, tahini and anything else you are adding. Blend until pureed.
  • You may want to serve with a few sprigs of parsley and some drizzled olive oil on top.
