Don't know what about you guys, but when I see an open fire, I have to burn some eggplants. It is deep in my blood, I have no other explanations for it. Baba Ganoush is a Levantine appetizer (Lebanese origin, popular all over the middle-east) consisting of eggplant, olive oil, lemon juice, various seasonings, and sometimes tahini. My version uses tahini, but I find myself sometimes doing this dish even without, which keeps the dish very light. Next time you are grilling outside, get some eggplants and throw them on the fire. The key to burn the eggplants properly is not to flip them every two seconds. In fact- in my method I flip them once, and it makes a world of a difference, believe me. YASSS.
