I posted about Baba Ganoush last October, and I’m posting about it again today because Tuesday is Food Day on my blog. Also: B.
Here’s last year’s post:
Baba Baba Baba GANOUSH!
Made some. Et it. Loved it.
Yes, I made some baba ganoush before and did NOT like it, but ain’t a lady allowed to change her mind? (Hint: The answer is yes.)
Anywho, I got some fresh eggplant from the farmers’ market, which may have been the difference between this time and the other, disappointing time. I roasted the eggplant, cut it open and scraped out its guts (HAPPY HALLOWEEN E’EN, EVERYBODY!), added some peeled and chopped tomatoes, garlic olive oil, sesame oil, (you can see the oils glistening in the light of my powerful flash — FOOF), lemon juice, and salt and pepper, and ate up every scrip and scrap.
I was very happy to enjoy it, since I love the name. How can you not love something called baba ganoush?
