This recipe Is from week 20 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Bahrain is my 20th stop. Baba ghanoush is enjoyed throughout the Middle East, but this version is made in Bahrain and is usually eaten with khubz, or sliced pita bread.
- 1 large eggplant
- 2 garlic cloves
- 2 tablespoons tahini
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1⁄2 cup yogurt
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 5 kalamata olives
- Put the eggplant on a baking sheet and roast in a 400 degree oven for about an hour.
- When the hour is up, take the eggplant out and let it cool, then remove the skin and the green top and put the soft insides into a blender.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until smooth. Garnish with the kalamata olives.
