    KristinV's Note:

    Baba ganoush is a delicious eggplant puree that can be used in much the same way as hummus. It is a must-have on any Middle Eastern meze platter where it is delicious accompanied by brine-cured black olives and warm pita wedges. This version has mint which complements the roasted eggplant sweetness perfectly.

      I really like this method of piercing the eggplant with the garlic before roasting it - brilliant!...although it was a bit tricky to get some of the garlic pieces in. As the garlic is roasted, it is very mellow in the finished product. That could be a good thing all depending on what it's going with. For my tastes I think an extra raw clove might be a good addition. I wish I had had an extra head of garlic on hand to roast alongside the eggplant, and added that in to the mix. I'm not sure how much I like the mint addition, and I usually love mint - maybe the sort I used wasn't quite right. Thanks Kristin, it's tasty and I look forward to serving it tomorrow with some pita. ZWT6.
