Minty, smoky dip with amazing texture and taste!
- Vitamix or Blender Baba Ganoush
- 2 large aubergines or 3 smaller ones
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 2 tbsp tahini
- 2 garlic cloves
- 3 tbsp chopped mint or flat-leaf parsley
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Grilling the aubergines gives the dish a slightly smoky flavour. This is a very smooth dip or salad topper
Blacken the aubergines under the grill on a lower shelf, turning very regularly with tongs, until completely charred and collapsed. Allow to cool.
Slit the aubergines lengthways and scoop out the flesh in long strands, discarding the skins. Add to the blender or Vitamix
Add the olive oil, lemon juice and tahini into the blender. Add the garlic and two-thirds of the chopped herbs, and season again to taste.
Blend away until you have a smooth well mixed baba ganouche – doesn’t take long!!
Top with the remaining herbs.
This is wonderful as a dip or alongside a lunchtime salad
