Baba ghanoush has a deliciously smoky and nutty taste and a creamy texture and is a great way to "hide" eggplant for reluctant eggplant eaters. Serve it with wedges of warm pita bread.
Delicious! For extra smoky flavour I added a tiny dash of Wright's Hickory Concentrated Liquid Smoke (a product I bought in the US). I used one huge eggplant which wasn't quite ready at 30 mins and needed an extra 20 mins baking time. Didn't have tahini either and it turned out fine. Great served with baked Lebanese Bread chips. - 17 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
