you might have heard of it from the movie wedding crashers, but now i give you an authentic recipe to actually make it yourself.  this appetizer is great for any cocktail party, so try this lebanese family favorite.

Baba Ganoush
1 eggplant
1 ½ tbs garlic
½ tsp salt
3 tbs tahini
5 tbs lemon juice

remove  eggplant skin and prick with fork.  microwave the eggplant till cooked about 5 minutes then mash in a bowl.  then add garlic, salt, tahini and lemon juice, and mix together.  (if too thick add water)


  • baba ganoush should be the same consistency as hummous.
  • tahini can be found in the international foods aisle or a specialty store.
  • serve with a crudite, pita chips or pita bread.
