Baba Ganoush is a dip that originates from the Middle East and it can often be found in the more exotic supermarkets. But the taste of home-made Baba Ganoush is incomparable to the ready-made varieties. And it is often healthier to make your own Baba Ganoush too.
Baba Ganoush, a Mediterranean delicacy, used in soup in this recipe
Baba Ganoush is made with aubergine that is prepared under the grill or in the oven, after which its purple peel is removed and it is pureed. This is then combined with a little pepper and fleur de sel, olive oil and some lemon juice. Then herbs such as garlic and parsley are added for more flavour. Baba Ganoush can be savoured as a healthy snack, a hors d’oeuvres with bread or as a meze with a variety of other Mediterranean dishes. In this recipe Baba Ganoush is also used, but this time in soup. The soup perfectly highlights the delicious flavour of the aubergine.
