Smoky Aubergine Baba Ganoush

By

Welcome to aubergine heaven. This recipe is creamy, rich in flavour and highly addictive – but it’s also healthy, completely made from whole foods and vegan-friendly!

Ingredients

  • 1 large aubergine
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil plus extra for drizzling
  • 1 garlic clove peeled
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Fresh coriander and crackers

Instructions

  • Preheat an oven to 180Fan/200*C and cut the aubergine in half lengthways. Place cut side down on a baking tray and roast for about 30 minutes until tender. Allow to rest until cool enough to handle.
  • Remove the skin from the aubergine and add the flesh to the food processor and add the tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, smoked paprika and season with salt and pepper. Blend until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides as necessary and adjust the taste with extra paprika for heat, lemon juice for tang and salt and pepper for seasoning.
  • Chill for 1 hour or so and then pour into a small bowl, drizzle with extra olive oil, sprinkle with chopped coriander and serve with crackers. Chilling before serving is recommended but not essential.
