Baba Ganoush

Introduction

No tahini, serve w/ chopped fresh veggies and pita bread No tahini, serve w/ chopped fresh veggies and pita bread
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 medium eggplant, peeled and roasted
    About 1/2 small head garlic, roasted
    1 medium shallot (can use onion)
    Small bunch cilantro, finely chopped
    About 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    1/8 tsp Cumin (optional)
    1/4 tsp Greek Spice mix (optional)
    Salt, to taste
    Black Pepper, to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degees (200 C). Place foil over baking sheet. Peel and cube eggplant. Peel garlic cloves. Lay eggplant and garlic on baking sheet, salt and pepper as desired. VERY LIGHTLY coat with olive oil to prevent burning. Roast for about 15 minutes, or until lightly roasted. Roughly chop shallot and cilantro and place in food processor. Add Greek spice and cumin, as well as pinch salt and pepper, if desired. (Can also add Tabasco here for an added kick!) Once eggplant/garlic are done, remove from oven and allow to cool down until only slightly warm to the touch. Add to mix in food processor. Cover and begin at very slow speed. Once chopped, gradually add olive oil through feeder tube until nice consistency as desired. Pour into serving dish and serve with lightly toasted pita bread and chopped fresh veggies (cucumbers, tomatoes, celery are my favorites!) If a sweeter flavor is desired, roast the shallot as well... cut into larger pieces and combine on tray with garlic and eggplant.

Will serve approximately 6-8 people.
