Cortas baba ghanoush eggplant, or aubergine, dip is a classic mezze dish. To serve, mix with a little lemon juice, fresh crushed garlic and olive oil to taste. Scoop up with warm flatbreads as a light lunch or starter.
Baba ghanoush is made with aubergines that are grilled whole until the skin crackles and turns black, lending a hint of smoky, chargrilled flavour to the aubergine flesh. The soft aubergine is scooped out and blended with tahini to make a rich puree with hints of smokiness.
