Baba Ghanoush - Aubergine Dip

Great dip for crispy vegetables and breadsticks.

  • 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 Aubergines
  • 2 Small Crushed Garlic Cloves
  • 2 tbsp Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3 tbsp Toasted Sesame Paste (Tahin)
  • tsp Coarse Salt
  • Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 2 Warm Arabic Flatbreads (Cut Into Triangles)
  • Dried Chilli Flakes
  • 5 g Chopped Flat Leaved Parsley

Method

Step 1

Remove the stems from the aubergine, rinse and slice.

Step 6

Let the eggplant dip rest in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Season to taste.
