Roasted eggplant, garlic, lemon juice, and paprika come together to create a flavorful dip that's sure to please. The pinch of cumin adds a little extra spice and complexity to the dip, making it perfect for dipping fresh veggies or pita chips. Perfect choice for those following Paleo or Whole30 diet.

Yield: 2 cup (approximately) | Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 35 minutes | Total time: 45 minutes

Instructions

1. Cut eggplant in half lengthwise, lightly brush with avocado oil, place on a baking tray (cut side down) and broil for about 35 minutes (I use my Cuisinart Toaster Oven for this step).

2. Once cool to the touch, peel away the skin and discard. Place peeled eggplant in a food processor, add tahini, garlic, lemon juice, paprika, salt and a small pinch of cumin. Process until smooth.


3. Adjust the flavor to your liking by sampling and adding more garlic, tahini, salt, or lemon juice as desired. Use a spoon to make a couple grooves, pour some olive oil, top baba ganoush with chopped parsley and serve.
