      Had friends over for a light supper and served your Baba Ghannouj with Pita Bread as an appetizer. What a hit! Your recipe is so much better than the one we get at an area Lebanese restaurant! Your ingredient amounts were "right on". Sooo flavorful! Thanks again Chrissy O for another great recipe.

      This was one of the better baba ghannouj recipes I've had and definitely the best one to come out of my kitchen. The tip of squeezing out the juice from the eggplant was a good one. However, I did use a little less tahini (about 100ml) than indicated and quite a bit less olive oil (about 50ml). Maybe my eggplants were smaller than the ones used in the original recipe, but I just found that the end product was so creamy it didn't need the full amount of either ingredient.

      Absolutely the best. I've tried other recipes for baba ghannouj and none compare with this. Could be addictive!
