Baba Ghanouj recipe
To make quarantine more bearable, from the Arab restaurant Beytna we are going to pass you a recipe for one of our best dishes: baba ghanouj !! It is a typical dish of Arab gastronomy full of flavor and very easy to make that will be delicious.
For this dish you need:
• 2 full-size eggplants
• 2 garlic cloves
• 2 large tablespoons of lemon juice
• ¼ tahini sauce
• 1/3 of virgin olive oil, and a little more with garlic to spread the eggplant
• 2 large tablespoons of parsley, to decorate
• ¾ salt, to taste
• ¼ small tablespoons of ground cumin
• A pinch of smoked paprika, to decorate
ELABORATION: Roast the aubergines. If you do not have a grill, what you can do to give it that flavor is to reduce the aubergines in half and roast them with the cut down so that it is a caramelized delight. EYE, because they are made faster, stay tuned so they don’t burn !! Using the paprika as a garnish also gives that touch of smoke.
Once the eggplants are done, take out their interior. You have to extract the moisture from the eggplant. Let the eggplant rest in a colander for a few minutes and then come back to release more moisture.
For the sauce, you have to add a lot of salt because the eggplant has a bitter flavor and thus it reduces somewhat.
Once seasoned, mix with the eggplant meat. Serving Suggestions: Hot or toasted pieces of pita, carrot sticks, bell pepper strips, cucumber slices, etc.
Hopefully it turns out great and do not hesitate to mention us on our social networks to see the result! From Beytna, an Arab restaurant, we wish you the best of luck in the preparation.
