With the summer heat, I am constantly craving quick and cool ways to make a sandwich, wrap, or veggies more exciting. Hummus is a staple in my summer time fridge, as well as avocados and lightened up guacamole. Baba ganoush recently joined that list. Baba Ganoush is a Middle Eastern eggplant dip, typically made roasted or grilled eggplant paired with garlic, olive oil, and spices. I like to add some tahini in mine to bring in the flavor of sesame seeds as well. Dip your veggies in it, spread it on a sandwich or wrap, or pair it with a Mediterranean salad plate. It makes a great cool summer snack that only gets better after hanging in the fridge for a couple of days. It also makes a great low carb substitute for hummus or bean dip.
