A simple recipe for homemade baba ganoush. This Lebanese classic is a terrific alternative to hummus and made with only 5 ingredients!


  • 1 Medium Eggplant
  • 1 lemon (Juiced)
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 3 Tbsp Tahini
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper (To Taste)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. With a fork, poke several deep holes in the eggplant up and down all sides.
  3. Wrap the pierced eggplant in aluminum foil and place on an oven safe pan. Roast in the oven for 40 minutes.
  4. While the eggplant roasts, peel the garlic cloves and juice the lemon. Place them into a blender or food processor and add the rest of the ingredients.
  5. When the eggplant is finished, allow it to cool. Unwrap the tin foil and with a knife cut off the stem and peel off the skin. Then, chop it into large chunks.
  6. Place the eggplant chunks into the food processor with the rest of the ingredients and purée until a desired consistency is reached. We prefer it extra creamy.
  7. Serve with your favorite veggies or breads.
  8. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to a week.
