Ba ba ba, ba ba ganoush
Our CSA yielded us a TON of eggplant this year. I decided to make some baba ganoush!! If you haven't had it before, it's kind of like an eggplant hummus.
1- take 2 eggplants, wash, and cut slits in the skin
2- roast at 400 until tender, about 30-45 minutes, then let cool for about 10 minutes
3- scoop the flesh out of the skin and let drain and cool in a colander (ewwww...it looks gross, right?!)
4- in a food processor, process eggplant guts (HAHA), with the juice of half of a lemon or lime, 2 T tahini, 2 T olive oil, 2 cloves of garlic (or more to taste) and dashes of sea salt, black pepper, chili powder, and sesame seeds.
5- blend until smooth and then let sit at room temperature for a hour before eating
