Baba Ganoush | How to make Baba Ganoush

 A nutritious and delicious very creamy baba ganoush from roasted aubergines filled with fresh flavours and smokiness.

We are in the third week of BM#38 and my theme for the week is How to Cook Perfect food Series.   Author Felicity Cloak on website reconstructed more than 100 recipes to make them perfect. I wanted to make some baked dishes from the website for three days.

As I am at my mom’s place and unfortunately there is no oven here so I decided to make non-baked recipes.

The first recipe in the series is Turkish Baba Ganoush, a smoky and delicious dip made of Aubergine.See the original recipe here.
