Babaganoush

Eggplant is great cooked in a Steam Combi oven. The steam aids in the caramelisation of the flesh making for a quicker cook and a delicious almost sweet result. 

This is a great dip - and when eggplant are plentiful its a cheap alternative to hummus with a much softer taste . You can adapt this recipe and add whatever flavours you want. I used smoked paprika for that warm smokey flavour but its equally great with lemon pepper with preserved lemon or  roasted capsicums added to the blended mixture 


2 eggplants , halved longwise

1 head of garlic 

2 T lemon juice

2 T tahini

1/2 t ground cumin

1/2 t smoked paprika 

Dukkah or sesame seeds for garnish

Olive or sesame oil
