I am posting this recipe as it was emailed to me.
I asked for permission to post it and it was granted... so to those
of you who are interested in the baba ganoush... here's a good recipe
that was sent to me :) -Nature
Prick eggplants with a fork and put on baking sheet and roast on 400
degrees until they are charred and collapse - at least an hour.
- 3 lbs. firm eggplant. (about 3 med eggplants)
- 2 med yellow onions
- 1/2 head garlic
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tbs tahine
- 3 tbs lemon juice
Allow them to cool, then split them lengthwise with a sharp knife
and sccop out the flesh, first pulling out and discarding any pockets
of dark seeds.
While the eggplants are roasting, chop the onions and peel and
mince the garlic.
Heat the olive oil in a non stick pan and cook the onion and garlic
in it with 1/2 tsp of salt, stirring often, until they are a deep
golden brown -
prabably at least 45 minutes.
stir the cooked onion and garlic into the eggplant, along with
the tahine, lemon juice and cayenne (about a pinch).
now either chop everything finely until it has the texture you like,
or process it a few seconds.
let it rest 1 -2 hours (refrigerate if longer), then taste it
and correct the salt and lemon juice if needed.
