Recipe: Baba Ghannouj (AKA, Eggplant Hummus)


  • 1 small eggplant
  • olive oil, for drizzling
  • 1 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. prepared minced garlic
  • 3 Tbsp. plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. tahini
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp. dried parsley flakes
  • juice of 1 lemon (about 1-2 Tbsp.)


Preheat oven to 450F. Slice eggplant into 1″ thick slices, lengthwise. Place on baking pan (I use a stoneware bar pan that has a 1″ lip around the edges) and drizzle with olive oil. Bake at 450F for about 30 minutes (I did this during the last 2/3 of baking our potatoes for dinner). Let cool. Peel skins off eggplant slices and discard skins.

Combine all ingredients, including eggplant, in food processor and blend to desired consistency. Serve with pita bread or fresh veggies. Mmm! So yummy! And so fun to say: Baba Ghanouj! (bah-bah gauh-noush)
