Roasted Eggplant Hummus

Baba ganoush (sometimes spelled baba ghanoush), is a Middle Eastern spread and dip that is similar to hummus, but is made with eggplant instead of chickpeas (garbanzo beans).

So if Baba Ganoush, (roasted vegetable spread) and hummus had a baby – here is what it would be.

This recipe is vegetarian and vegan. Super healthy & easy to make.  Would be great for a side dish with lunch or a perfect appetizer.

You can peel the eggplant if you don’t like the look of the skin, however I never peel it.  Saves a step, lots of time and I was always told theres tons of vitamins and nutrients in the skin.
