Lebanese Mutabal – Baba Ghanoush

Mutabal - Baba Ghanoush

Remember theΒ  Baba Ghanoush I made last week? Well, what I’m posting about is what the west considers as Baba Ghanoush. In Lebanon, we call it Mutabal. Just wanted to be clear on the two. I don’t care what you call either, because they are both YUMMY!

Now, you prepare the eggplant like I did in the baba ghanouj post. I still prefer grilling the eggplant if possible to give a smoky taste, but its good to just pop em in the oven and make a bunch for a big batch. You can easily freeze the rest too.

What you need for the Mutabal:

  • 1 eggplant
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 4Β  Tb tahini
  • 1 lemon
  • olive oil

And thats it! Can you believe something so yummy is so simple.

Add the garlic and lemon.

I decided to use an immersion blender. Most people use a blender.

Add the tahini.

and blend blend blend. Salt to taste, and also add more tahini or lemon as you like. Its very forgiving.

You drizzle olive oil on top, and garnish with paprika and parsley.
