This Easy Oil-Free Baba Ganoush Lebanese Dip – is an oil-free, gluten-free creamy Lebanese dip made from roasted eggplants that is great as a party snack or appetizer. With hummus and this delicious aubergine spread, you can make a great antipasti platter for your next party or simply if you fancy a delicious dip.
During the 45 minutes, while the eggplant is roasting in the oven, you can do other things, so it does not require you to stay in the kitchen focusing.
I personally love this dip a great alternative from the classic hummus and a low-calorie dip variant, which is prepared with little effort and is ideal as meal prep.
This homemade baba Ghanoush is made healthier, as no oil is used, but it still tastes like an authentic baba Ghanoush .
What is Baba Ganoush?
In short, Baba Ganoush is an eggplant dip. The eggplant is roasted in the oven and thus gets its great roasted taste. The two other ingredients are tahini (sesame paste) and garlic and you get the cousin of the hummus.
Baba Ganoush has its origin in Lebanon and the name comes from the Arabic. “Baba” means father and “ghanoush” means spoiled.
It’s delicious, easy and enjoyed all over the world!
