Essential Baba Ghanoush

The humble eggplant goes from drab, to fab and totally baba-tastic! We peel and dice the eggplant for max surface area during cooking. The result is a dip that is spiced n’ creamy with some serious depth of flavor. Take me to the mezzo platter!

  • 1To preheat the oven, insert the wire rack into position 6. Set the oven to Air Fry, 450°F, Rotate Remind, for 30 minutes and press Start. Meanwhile, continue to the next step.
  • 2Assemble the processor with the red dicing gearbox, dicing grid and blade in the bowl and dice the eggplant. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
    Tip: Use the red dicing cleaner to push through any eggplant caught in the dicing grid.
  • 3Add the garlic, olive oil and salt to the eggplant and toss to coat. Spread the eggplant mixture evenly over a sheet pan.
  • 4Once preheated, place the pan in the oven and cook for 30 minutes. When the oven signals stir the eggplant and continue cooking until the eggplant is golden brown and soft. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  • 5Carefully assemble the processor with the grey spindle and green S-blade™ in the bowl. Squeeze the garlic out of the skin and into the bowl. Add the eggplant, tahini, lemon juice and pepper and process to combine, scraping down the side occasionally. With the processor on, add the extra-virgin olive oil through the feed chute in a thin steady stream to combine.
    Tip: Process the baba ghanoush longer if you prefer it smooth and creamy.
  • 6Roasted, smoky, soft n’ silky…what’s your Baba G good for? It loves a hustle, drizzled with olive oil and served with some toasty Lebanese bread or crisp crudites, but is also fab spread on bruschetta, snuck into wraps or nestled up to some fresh tabbouleh, grilled chicken or fish.
