Baba Ganoush is a Lebanese side dish and dip, usually eaten with flatbread. We thoroughly enjoyed it a few nights ago – perfect as a starter!


  • 1 large brinjal or 3 baby brinals
  • olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp tahini
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ lemon
  • salt
  • pepper


Preheat oven to 180°C.

On a chopping board, cut the brinjal(s) in half lengthways. Score the flesh sides in a crisscross pattern, making sure you don’t cut through the skins. Drizzle with 2 Tbsp olive oil, then toss to coat.

Place on a baking tray, flesh-side up, then bake in the oven for around 45 minutes. Remove brinjals and set aside.

Roughly chop the garlic, then place into blender. Add the tahini, paprika, cumin, 2 Tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper..

Once brinjals are cool, scoop out soft flesh and add to the blender. Juice ½ lemon and add lemon juice before blending all ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Place into a serving bowl, before enjoying with crackers or flat bread.
