SEASONING FOR BABA GANOUSH

In order to make baba ganoush I wanted to use some classic ingredients; such as sesame tahini paste as it gives a great flavor to this eggplant dip. However, you can always season this baba ganoush recipe with the ingredients you already have at home; for example, I ran out of fresh parsley so I used dried parsley. Alternatively, if you don’t have or can’t make fresh lemon juice at home, but you have store-bought lemon juice you can use this option. It might be not a great idea to swap fresh seasonings, but sometimes we have to use what we have available, and that’s fine.

  • Cayenne pepper.

  • Sesame seeds/toasted sesame seeds.
