An Elegant Eggplant Dip
Baba ghanoush is a Middle Eastern dip/spread of cooked eggplant mixed with tahini, a sesame seed paste, olive oil and various seasonings. The eggplant is traditionally baked or broiled over an open flame before peeling and blending. The reason for baking or broiling the eggplant is so that the pulp is soft and has a smoky taste. Baba ghanoush is often eaten with pita bread as a starter to a meal. It is also sometimes added to other dishes.
