White Chocolate Baba Ghannouj
Baba ghannouj takes an unexpected twist in this version that includes a surprise ingredient - white chocolate!
Yield: 2½ cups
  • 8 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 2 large eggplants, sliced in half lengthwise
  • ⅓ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ⅔ cup tahini
  • 4 oz white chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1½ tsp smoked paprika, plus more for sprinkling
  1. Heat broiler on high.
  2. Place the garlic and eggplants, skin side up, on a large parchment-lined baking sheet. Broil until the garlic and eggplants are charred all over and cooked through. For the garlic, this should take 15-20 minutes and for the eggplant it should take 45 minutes to an hour depending on how hot your broiler is.
  3. Peel the garlic and transfer to a food processor. Scoop the eggplant insides from the eggplant, leaving the skin, and place those into the food processor as well. Add the lemon juice, tahini, white chocolate, cumin, and smoked paprika to the food processor bowl and pulse until smooth.
  4. Serve with pita chips or veggies for dipping, sprinkling with more smoked paprika to garnish.
