Easy Baba Ganoush Recipe (Vegan, Gluten Free)
Easy Baba Ganoush Recipe, a cold appetizer for any party. It's super delicious, and, as a bonus point, it's vegan, gluten free and low carb too, which means everybody gets to enjoy it. Aubergines or eggplant are such a versatile vegetable. They might be in season in summer time, but they are easily available throughout the year now. I grew up loving eggplant, and my favourite recipe ever still is the fantastic Mayo Eggplant Dip Canapés. It's a Romanian appetizer, although we call it salad, and it's pretty similar with baba ganoush. They both use the mashed cooked flesh of the eggplant, but while our salad uses mayonnaise to give it that rich flavours, baba ganoush uses tahini paste for its distinct taste. Tahini paste is heavily used in Middle Eastern recipes, the most famous one being hummus, the appetizer that needs no intruduction. And the tahini paste is actually just toasted sesame seeds that have been blended into a paste. It's amazing how just a little bit of this flavourful paste can go a long way, it does take the humble eggplant to a whole new level. Add just lemon juice for for a zesty kick, and you know
