Middle Eastern Breeze: Baba Ghanoush!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hello friends and fellow foodies!

I’m always looking for a good dip recipe. Some days ago I found this recipe, lightly edited and here it is!

This recipe has an Arabic origin, where eggplant has played a large role. Hope you enjoy it as I did! It goes well with pita bread, any kind of chips, crackers, etc. and as the tradition goes,  I can confirm that once you try it it’s really hard to stop eating!


  • 1.      2 large eggplants.
  • 2.      ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 3.       1 tbsp. Olive oil.
  • 4.       1 tbsp. mashed garlic or garlic paste (natural)
  • 5.      1 tsp. lemon or sour orange juice.
  • 6.      ½ tsp. black pepper.
  • 7.      ½ tsp. paprika.
  • 8.      ½ tsp. grated onion.
  • 9.      ½ tsp. cayenne pepper.
  • 10.  Salt.


Roast your eggplants. Peel them and mash them with a fork, add all other ingredients and take to the refrigerator to cool. Serve cool.

If you want to use Baba Ghanoush as a garnish, don’t use mayonnaise and do everything else exactly the same.
