A light and fresh snack: Baba Ganoush

Baba Ganoush is a typical Middle Eastern dish based on roasted eggplant, tomato, parsley, and cumin. It is often confused with another similar dish, the mutabal, which is a cream of eggplant and tahini, a kind of fusion between hummus and baba ganoush, but of this recipe.

The one I propose is a fresh recipe, light and quick to prepare, adapts to all tastes and perfect for parties and snacks with friends.
