Servings: 6
Preparation Time: 1 hour

  • 1 large eggplant
  • 3 tablespoons Tahini
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon Expeller Pressed Coconut Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Himalayan salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder, optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper flakes, optional
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, for garnish
  • fresh or dried parsley flakes, for garnish

Preheat oven to 400° F.

Prick eggplant skin with fork or cut a shallow slit along the side of the eggplant (to prevent eggplant from exploding). Place eggplant on a baking dish in middle or top rack in oven, and cook until eggplant shrivels and is soft and mushy and skin is somewhat charred, about 40-50 minutes.

Once eggplant has cooled to touch, peel skin and scoop insides into a bowl and mash (with a fork or potato masher).

Add tahini, garlic, lemon juice, coconut oil, salt, cumin, and cayenne pepper. Mix well.

Scoop Coconut Oil Baba Ghanouj dip into a serving bowl and drizzle with olive oil and garnish with parsley. Serve with warm flatbread or enjoy with freshly sliced vegetables, like cucumber, bell peppers, or carrots.
