Turkish Roasted Eggplant Salad
(Baba Ganouj)




  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F (or for more authentic taste, roast directly over hot coals, wrapped in foil). Lightly oil a baking sheet or foil.
  2. Slice the eggplant in half lengthwise, and place face down on the foil or baking sheet.
  3. Bake or roast for about 30 minutes, until very tender.
  4. Remove from cooking source and allow to cool until it is comfortable to handle.
  5. Scoop out the eggplant pulp, and discard the skin. Place the pulp in a bowl or food processor or blender.
  6. Add the garlic, lemon juice, tahini and salt. Puree or mash until almost smooth.
  7. Transfer to serving dish, cover tightly, and chill.
  8. Drizzle the top with olive oil and fresh parsley before serving.
  9. Serve with pita or flat bread or endive for dipping.

Serves 4 to 6 as an appetizer or side dish.
