Baba Ganoush

Baba Ganoush

Preparation Time - 5-10 minutes
Cooking Time- 15-20 minutes
Feeds- 4-6 As a snack

Ingredients - 
2 Mediums sized aubergines- Pricked with a fork and left whole
1/2 Red onion - Finely diced
2 Cloves of garlic (The smoked variety work well with this dish)- crushed and roughly chopped 
1/2 Juice of a lemon
Glug of olive oil
1 Generous bunch of basil 
Generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
Generous sprinkle of salt flakes
Generous sprinkle of white pepper and freshly ground black pepper

Start by pricking the aubergines with a fork all over then place directly onto a gas flame, turning after a minute or so once the skin starts to blister. Once blacked all over transfer to a sealable bag and allow to steam cook for 5-10 minutes, until soft. Peel of the blackened skin and roughly pull apart or chop the aubergine and return to the hob in a pan along with the chopped onion and garlic and a glug of olive oil, cook for 3-4 minutes on a medium heat. Transfer to a food processor, add the bunch of basil, seasoning and extra virgin olive oil, blitz until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
