Got a craving yesterday… mezzeh. So I bought the ingredients today. I must admit I did not do the bread myself in order to have dinner at a decent time. But we could buy some nice pitta bread. So here you are with recipe number 1, Baba Ganoush or Eggplants Caviar.
1 big eggplant
4 garlic cloves (if you use fresh garlic please use only 2)
5 spoons Tahini (sesame paste)
juice of 1 lime
1/4 of teaspoon of black cumin (grated)
Harissa (or any other chill based spice mix, I even added some Shicimi Togarashi)
Put the eggplant in the oven at 200°C for about half an hour.
When done, peel the eggplant and cut in cubes.
Add the pressed garlic cloves and all other ingredients and put in a blender. You should get a nice creamy Baba Ganoush.
Serve with Olive oil and Pita Bread. Enjoy!
