During this lockdown, vegetable shopping has been hit or miss, depending on availability as well as quality of the vegetables. I happen to get my hands on a very large beautiful eggplant and decided that it had been years since I last roasted an eggplant directly over the stove. And while directly roasting over an open flame does require some scrubbing of your stove when you’re done, the smokier flavor you get (vs. roasting in an oven) really makes a huge difference with your baba ganoush. I’ve got the recipe below, but do check out the little IGTV video I posted over on instagram. Muchof the recipe really comes down to taste and balance, so use my recipe as a guide but don’t be shy about adjusting your quantities to how you like things best! Enjoy!
Looking for an easy way to use up your eggplants? This smoky creamy Baba Ganoush is just what you need! Enjoy it with pita bread or frankly just on its own.
