The summer is still here, and what can be better than a salad, Tsatsiki and some Baba Ghanoush. The way to do it I’ve learned from some Lebanese friends. And it is fantastic! Here is Hanady’s recipe;
1 large or 3 Long Eggplants
1 Garlic Clove
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
2 tablespoons Tahini
To Garnish: Olive Oil, Sumac, Parsley
Prick the eggplants with a fork and place directly on your stovetop burner. Rotate the eggplants to get an even char on all sides. When all sides are charred and the eggplant is soft remove from heat and set aside until they are cool.
Once cool, remove the skin and discard.
Place the peeled eggplants, garlic, lemon juice, tahini and salt in a food processor and blend until smooth.
Garnish with olive oil, sprinkling of sumac and parsley.
Serve with pita bread, cucumbers, carrots or cherry tomatoes
