Quick & Easy Baba Ganoush Recipe

If there is one recipe that will make you roll your eyes or shrug your shoulders, it's probably Baba Ganoush.

I completely understand! First, the name, Baba Ganoush. Just what is that anyway? Second, isn't Baba Ganoush a complicated Mediterranean recipe? Lastly, eggplant!

Baba Ganoush is quite simply a dip made from roasted eggplant (you can also grill it!), lemon, olive oil, tahini and a couple pantry spices. Really, that's it! The smooth and creamy texture of Baba Ganoush makes it the perfect appetizer or snack with cut veggies or GF crackers, or enjoy at lunch as a spread in a veggie sandwich or lettuce wrap.

Please give this one a try before you completely shrug it off. I think it will become a summer staple!
