Along with hummus, baba ganoush is probably one of the best known - and most loved - Lebanese recipes. In this classic meze dish, chargrilled eggplants are blended with oil and tahini into a creamy dip.
Although delicious, the traditional recipe may not be suitable for those who suffer from sesame allergy. So, today we want to show you how to make Baba Ganoush without tahini.
To replace the sesame paste, we have used soaked cashew nuts. Compared to other nuts, cashews are higher in starches and fats, so they get incredibly creamy when blitzed. They also add a nutty, "cheesy" flavour to this eggplant starter.
Not only super delicious, this aubergine dip is also healthy and super quick to prepare. In just 35 minutes, you'll have a tasty appetiser high in fibres and unsaturated fats, and with only 200 calories per serving.
