While Hummus has already won many fans, Baba Ghanoush is still more of an insider. But on a good Mezze neither one nor the other must be missing! The aubergine dip goes fantastically with fish, grilled meat and fresh thread bread.
There is actually no BBQ without Baba Ghanoush. Especially because you can put the eggplant directly on the grill. It then cooks nicely and gets a wonderful smoky aroma through the high temperature, which gives the dip its characteristic taste. If you don’t have the opportunity to grill the eggplant, you can also put it in the oven at high heat and then add some smoked salt to bring out the flavour.
My mother has a small grid that she puts directly on her stove to roast the eggplant on it. This is also very practical. 😉
