Baba Ghanoush #TuesdayTummy

I have never liked eggplant. I always found it weird in taste and texture, until I tried baba ghanoush, which is essentially eggplant, wrapped in foil and roasted and then mixed with tahini, onions and tomatoes. Of course, being the way I am, I always need to make a dish my own, so I added a few things to make it more interesting and tasty (Feta, anyone?) Here's a delicious but healthy snack to curb those hunger pangs between meals.

Ingredients:

2 medium sized eggplants
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup tahini
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small tomato, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
juice of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
paprika
Pita bread

How to:


  • Pierce holes in your eggplant with a fork and throw in the oven for about 40 minutes, until roasted and tender.
  • Rinse with cold water and peel off the skin
  • Add all ingredients except feta, onions, tomatoes and paprika and put in a food processor or blender until mixed well.
  • Place in a bowl and add onions and tomatoes, mix well.
  • Add feta on top and sprinkle paprika
  • Serve with toasted pita triangles
