If you like hummus, you’ll love this Smoky Baba Ghanoush Dip, filled with creamy pureed eggplant, tahini, garlic and herbs. In this take on the traditional Middle Eastern mezze, the eggplant is gently smoked then blended until creamy and delicious. The pungent flavor of garlic along with a touch of lemon balances out the smokiness of the eggplant for a mouthwatering bite. Serve with grilled pita chips or alongside a platter of fresh veggies for dipping.
In order to bring out the smoky flavors in this recipe, we recommend using our Competition Blend Hardwood Pellets.
Note: This recipe uses Louisiana Grills Smokey, Spicy, Sweet Hot Seasoning.
