Recipe: Baba Ghanouj
This weekend it was my vegetarian daughter’s birthday. This is her in a not-so-recent photo.
She’s a little bit older and taller now, but I think this captures the essential Sarah that we all know and love.
In her honor, and because I saw the recipe in Kelli’s blog and was inspired by it, I made a birthday dinner that wasn’t just vegetarian, but Vegan! (note: of course, Kelli’s domain name registration expired over the weekend, so you won’t get anywhere by clicking that link)
Since her domain name expired I wasn’t able to directly use her recipe so I found one over on SimplyRecipes which served us well. I highly recommend grilling the eggplants instead of baking them in the oven because the grilling imparts a smokey flavor that really adds to the dish.
In addition to the fancy-looking cut up vegetables, I made Pita Chips for dipping which turned out great and were very easy to make.
Rating: I give this a 4 out of 5, although I’m pretty sure Sarah gave it a full 5 glasses. This fed four adults as an entree’ and could easily serve many more as an appetizer.
