Nose up once

Creamy taste

Baba Ganooj made from roasted and pureed eggplant

Absolutely delicious with pita bread.

  1. MMMMM....sounds so good. Is there anything you haven't made?

  2. I'll be right over for some of this. Sounds fabulous. You and I both love garlic. Yes we do.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. ☺

  3. Would you believe I'm allergic to eggplant? I'm weird. :)

  5. Oh, that stuff is good! It's the only way my family will eat eggplant.

  6. Mrs. C. loves baba ganooj. Me, not so much.

  7. I love, love, love baaba ganooj... although I always called it ganoosh. Great post!

  8. I love eggplant. It has a posh name as well doesn't it....?
    Thanks for an appetizing post.

  9. Never would have thought to make dip out of eggplant, thanks for this great idea! I'm not usually a fan but I know its really healthy so the new twist will be fun to try.

  10. I tried to bake Eggplant a few ago and it was horrible. Then I was watching a cooking show and she did the same thing I did. I will just have to leave my eggplant to someone else's cooking.


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
