BABA GHANOUSH (Eggplant Dip)

Eggplants…. eggplants….eggplants, *whisper* I love eggplants!  So it is not a big surprise that I really like Baba Ghanoush (Eggplant Dip).  I spread Baba Ghanoush on Grilled Turkish Bread and even on toasts quite liberally like a Peanut Butter Addict gone crazy.  Baba Ghanoush is also beautiful inside a rolled Lebanese bread with salad and marinated grilled meat slices. 

With this recipe I’m sharing, I made it twice as the first one have that bite/bitterness from the grilled eggplant which I don’t like.  You have to choose the oval shaped eggplants not the Lebanese eggplant (long slender ones).  Size do matter, do not choose the biggest ones… get the medium size.  Avoid old eggplants with crinkly dull soft skin it should be taut.  If you look closely to the eggplant’s bottom, you’ll see a “belly button” indentation….choose the rounder shaped as it contains less seeds.

NUTELLA VS NUTINO

Nutella or Nutino Hazelnut Spreads, which is better?

For the past couple of years now Nutella has risen to new heights of food stardom overseas.  Everyone raves how they love it and even just thinking about Nutella makes them salivates. I for one like it but not to the point of collapsing to the ground in orgasmic food comatose every time I ate it smeared on my morning toast….lol!  If you want to read how Nutella came to be, please read this post by Tori Avey: The History of Nutella.
