Eggplant Dip Recipe - Baba Ganoush

Eggplant Dip Recipe - Baba Ganoush by Sidrah

Baba Ganoush, a Middle Eastern eggplant dip, is very similar to hummus, except it is made with eggplant. If you like eggplants, like me, you will definitely make this a staple dish. I cook it often and use it as a dip (for snacks) or meals in between the main meals.
