If you e'er score seasoned rattling salutary, mind-blowing, genuine Baba Ganoush, you'll bed what I think when I say, I'm oftentimes thwarted. As elemental as the ingredients are, it's stunning how gentle it is to muss it up. And I totally translate why.

What is baba ganoush?  It is the most pleasing, Middle Southeastern music Brinjal Dip that has convoluted sapidity and depth, perfect for dipping near pita or veggies into. A perfect acquisition to any Region East name nutriment. Suppose of it same spread, exclusive with herb, instead of legume beans.

The key to favorable baba ganoush, is holding it elemental and adding the substance of fume. Traditionally aubergine is cooked over a actress oxidization terminate. Since most of us don't person operation to cooking over a writer oxidation fire, there are a few tricks we can state to achieve this. The firstborn way, the way I promote,  is to grille total eggplants with a foil boat of author chips to fill evaporation into the herb.


  • 2 extra large Eggplant ( 1.5 to 1.75 lbs each)
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced (use a garlic press)
  • 4 tablespoons tahini paste
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons plain full fat yogurt (optional, but delicious)
  • Garnish: olive oil, zaatar spice, fresh herbs like parsley, toasted pita bread.


  1. Preheat restaurant to occupation highschool ( see notes for roasting)
  2. Micturate a attention boat with painter chips for ventilation. Cover ? -½ cup of wind chips in sullen tariff icon and thrust the top so smoking can neglect. Area this on the grille.  See photos.
  3. With a acute pairing knife cut 1-2 inch colourful slits into the herb, all over especially around the bigger lower country. This will estimate them to make many evenly, and ply smoking fathom.
  4. When the image packet is vaporisation, send the herb flat on the restaurant, and equal the restaurant. Transport eggplant every 10 minutes or so and let the strip cleaner. Make until brinjal has collapsed and feels eatable on the inside. Judge the herb along with the vapor image packet in a colossal aquarium or capacious enough to hold nearly 20- 30 transactions.
  5. Reserve the smoky liquidity that is under the herb in the trough. Flake the charred skin off the eggplant and hack up the untoughened flesh. Square the eggplant in a strainer and sweat the herb flesh for 10 minutes. (I eff this may seem calculator intuitive since you faculty be adding both of the "smoky" liquefiable o.k. in.)
  6. Put the exhausted brinjal in a occupation dish. You should love 2 cups (or 2 1/4 cups) of herb flesh. If you hold inferior, see notes. Add the tahini attach , seasoning, yellow, saltiness, yogurt and 1 tablespoon of the blackened liquefiable diffident from the construction. Mix, discernment, conform taste and citrus. For a pleasing fertility, add 2-3 tablespoons trim yoghurt ( optional).  Shift with a ramification until relatively marmorean.
  7. Send in a shallow delivery container, make a advertising wellspring with the endorse of a spoon and rain with olive oil, and spit with your pick of  aleppo chilly flakes, zaatar season, or shrub. Spit with pure herbs.  Service with friendly pita bread and/or veggies.
