Your Baba did what, now?
Baba Ganoush. Yum. Who would have thought that a eggplant could be so yummy.
Put your eggplant in the crockpot. Pock a few holes in it first with a fork.
Add the juice from one lemon, a few cloves of garlic, and cook it up on high for about 3 hours until, if you poke it with a fork it gets mushy.
Take it out and process the garlic and eggplant in a food processor until it is a smooth. Add a little bit of olive oil, the juice from half a lemon, a little coriander, a little cumin and salt and pepper to taste. Traditional recipes call for tahini. I never have tahini in the house, so I put about a table spoon of almond butter and that seems quite yummy.
Use it as a spread for sandwiches. I like to eat it with President's Choice Hemp and black sesame tortilla chips.
