Baba Ganoush: Roasted Eggplant Dip

Ryan Shepard - The Upside Blog


Hummus is heavenly. But baba ganoush is out-of-this-world GOOD. If you’re looking to enhance your favorite Mediterranean recipes, then this smoky roasted eggplant dip is a must try! The recipe requires minimal ingredients and pairs well with pita, crackers, veggies and falafel – making it the perfect choice for healthy snacking or a group appetizer. You can also spread fresh baba ganoush onto veggie wraps. Yum!


We suggest serving with warm pita. To do so, preheat oven 400 degree F. Slice each pita bread pocket into eight slices. Drizzle with olive oil, plus a sprinkle of salt, pepper and smoked paprika. Bake 6 minutes or until golden brown.

Recipe Notes

  • Chef’s tip: While eggplant is still roasting, toss two whole garlic cloves onto pan during the last 8-10 minutes. Then, mince roasted garlic with the remaining raw garlic clove and mix into mashed eggplant.
