Ingredients

  • 2 aubergines  (about 500 g/ 17 oz)
  • 1 clove garlic clove crushed
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 50 g greek yoghurt 1.7 oz
  • 50 ml  fresh lemon juice 1.6 fl oz

to garnish!

  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint leaves

Instructions

To prepare the aubergine on a grill or BBQ- (My preferred way)

  • Place the aubergines on the BBQ and cook until both sides the aubergine is soft inside and the outer surface of the aubergines are charred.

To prepare the aubergine on a gas hob

  • Let the aubergine site over the flame of a gas hop until the outer surface is charred. Rotate occasionally.
  • To prepare the aubergine in the oven
  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Slice the aubergine in half and roast cut side down for half an hour in the oven.
  • Preparing the Dip
  • Split the aubergines open on a chopping board. Scoop out the soft flesh and remove the skin. Place the flesh into a bowl.
  • Peel the garlic and crush it into the bowl.
  • Add the salt.
  • Mix the tahini with a spoon before slowly pouring it into the aubergine mixture.
  • Add the yoghurt and olive oil and mix everything with the back of a spoon.
  • Puree the mixture with a blender or immersion stick.
  • Place the baba ganoush into a bowl. Pour over a teaspoon of pomegranate molasses and sprinkle with fresh pomegranate seeds and mint leaves.
