when i went to the farmer's market last week,
i don't know what possessed me to buy only one eggplant.
when i came home, i kicked myself because i have a million eggplant recipes
floating around my head
that i can use at the drop of a hat...
so i grabbed it and figured: let me make something new!
i researched and found...babaganoush!
so i sliced the baby in half, and put it skin-side up
on my greased baking pan with some cloves of garlic
for about 45 minutes at 450 degrees until all was really mushy...
i added it to the eggplant meat to the blender
with some cayenne pepper, salt, a little extra virgin olive oil
and very finely chopped parsley...
and blended til mushy!
of course, you can add tahini,
but i was clean out.
and add lemon juice to taste...
extra yum factor!
the globetrotting gamine
