    I *love* baba ghanoosh (sometimes I see it spelled "baba ghanooj")...ate it a lot when we were in the Middle East. I don't make it as often as I want it, but I should! The preparations are involved, but so worth it. We were told the name means "Spoiled Baby" because of the work involved in fixing! - 8/18/10

    I was actually trying to find a healthier version. This is an old Armenian recipe I knew the Tahini would raise the calories....but wow!

    Here's a link to a lower calorie version.
