Baba Ganoush

1 hour 5 minutes
Baba Ganoush
  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 230°C/450°F. Prick each fresh local eggplant several times with the tip of a sharp knife, then place on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Roast in the oven for 45-60 minutes, turning them over halfway until the skins are wrinkly and the eggplants feel soft when lightly pressed.

  • Step 2

    Leave the eggplants until cool enough to handle, then peel away the blackened skins and put the flesh into a colander. Press with the back of a ladle to squeeze out as much liquid as possible, then tip the eggplant flesh onto a board and chop roughly (or blitz in a blender for a smooth texture if preferred).

  • Step 3

    Put the chopped eggplant into a bowl and add the lemon juice, tahini, yogurt, garlic, thyme leaves and seasoning. Mix well..

  • Step 4

    Spoon the baba ganoush into a serving bowl and drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over the surface. Sprinkle with a little sumac or chopped parsley to garnish and serve with warm flat bread. (Serves 4-6)
