Baba Ganoush, Lebanese Eggplant Caviar


A creamy eggplant caviar to serve as a snack or with another mezze

If there is a kitchen that I love in summer, it is Lebanese cuisine with all these small preparations, mezze, which makes it possible to make very fresh and colorful dishes. You can also find a good selection of Lebanese recipes on the blog, and I still intend to expand the choice ^^

Today I offer you a great classic, the Baba Ganoush, also known as Eggplant Caviar! This recipe is really very easy to make and absolutely delicious! However, I recommend that you wait for a day when it is a little colder to do so because there is a lot of time in the oven for the eggplants to melt;
