Yummy Baba Ghanoush with Spouted Garbanzos + Sun-dried Tomatoes

Baba Ghanoush is a popular hummus-style spread of Lebanese descent. It features nutritionally dense eggplants and tahini as well as raw garlic and extra virgin olive oil. In this version, I added sprouted garbanzo beans and sun-dried tomatoes to create a hearty spread that would complement pita chips, raw veggies and sandwiches.

Directions:

  • Slice the eggplant lengthwise down the middle, drizzle with olive oil and allow to roast in the oven at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.
  • Once roasted, scoop the eggplant out (leaving the skin behind) and transfer to the awaiting food processor along with the garbanzo beans, tahini, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and lemon juice – pulse to incorporate.

  • Next, transfer to the awaiting bowl and fold in the salt and pepper along with the parsley and cilantro.
