Baba ganoush is a vegan Middle Eastern starter or appetizer made of eggplant, tahini and other super healthy ingredients. Serve with some crudités.


  • 2 eggplants
  • 4 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sea salt (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven at 355 ºF or 180 ºC.
  2. Place the eggplants onto a baking sheet and pierce the skin with a knife to avoid an exploding eggplant. Bake for 40 minutes or until the eggplants are cooked.
  3. When the eggplants are cold enough, chop them and place them in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients (you can also use a blender). Blend until smooth and creamy. Let the mixture cool in the fridge.
  4. Serve with some extra virgin olive oil and some herbs or spices on top (I added dry dill).
