My easy Mutabal

This is a delicious side dish and is allot like hummus. It is baked eggplant, blended with garlic and Tahini and is one of my favorite things! I am making this my way which is a tiny bit different than most. I do not grill the eggplant, also I blend the eggplant instead of mashing it.

Ingredients

2 eggplants

1 large clove garlic

2 Tbs. Lemon juice

2 Tbs. Tahini

1/2 tsp. salt or desired amount

You can add more or less of these ingredients according to your taste.

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Wash and dry eggplants, cut off top stem area, discard.  Prick outside of eggplant in several places and place on baking pan, put into oven. Let bake until totally done and soft. Remove from oven and let cool. Take peel off of eggplant and discard.

Place eggplant into food processor or blender. Add other ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour onto a plate, sprinkle with olive oil. This is usually eaten with Arabic bread.

      • yes, is this the same recipe? I really enjoyed it. Those eggs were a big hit. That part of my tiny family is in England now. Niece gone back to Uni at York and sister visiting her there and I think she is in London today…anyway, they loved the eggs and turned out they make them too! Sister is a “foodie” she has a lot more time than me as she is able to stay home and her kids are grown and left the nest. Working full time can be a struggle to get cool things like cooking in…so when I cook and it turns out…yay! : ) Cheers dear.

  7. Nice I made tahini chicken last night! LOL. But sadly I cannot eat eggplant so I have to stick to hummus darn it, that looks so good! I want to eat it but at the expense of slurring, swallowing issues, and the likes, I guess I will have to pass. You shouldn’t make hazards look so good, LMBO! 😉

  8. I have never tried Mutabal. It looks absolutely delicious and so creamy. I am not a big fan of the texture of an eggplant, so this looks like a perfect way to eat it 🙂

    • yes so funny, I never liked eggplant before! But years ago I tried this and liked it! I make it a little different and the blending gives a texture more like hummus! Thanks Antonia!

          • I think most people think the same thing, that they are interchangeable, and baba ganoush has become the universal name really hasn’t it? That’s why I hesitate to correct people!!
