Baba Ganoush Linguini

Don't judge this dish by looks :-) it tastes so good and its super simple to make. One of my favorite dips is baba ganoush, so I figured why not combine with pasta. Its basically baba ganoush but I didn't add tahini. 


  • one large eggplant
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • one tablespoon olive oil
  • linguini
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • a dash of lemon juice 
  • 1/2 a teaspoon cumin powder
  • handful freshly chopped parsley
  1. thinly slice the eggplant and put on a baking tray with garlic drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake at 400 for 15- 20 minutes until soft
  2. add a little cumin, dash of lemon, parsley and blend 
  3. mix with linguini and serve

  4. Eggplant is one of my favorite vegetables [tho its actually a fruit :)], I eat it at least 3 times a week! Linguini and baba ganoush sounds heavenly.

  5. Perhaps this is the way I could get my husband to eat eggplant! I does sound delicious and, even if not beautiful, the plate certainly is :)

  7. Dear Rebecca, I totally agree! Sometimes the dish does not appear as colorful or eye appealing as you would like, but you say to yourself, "oh, if only everyone could taste this!".
