Eggplant Hummus

Today at Pick Up we had Eggplant and I was reminded of a great recipe!  It is Baba Ganosh–Eggplant Hummus….Eggplant instead of chick peas (garbanzo beans).

It was only the Half/Full’s Shares that got the the first harvest of the Eggplant today…but as it begins producing more than more people we get it in their shares–  Anyway… Baba Ganosh is recipe #44 under the Recipe tab.  It calls for 2 Eggplant, but the recipe can be cut in half for 1 Eggplant.  When choosing your eggplant at Pick Up, choose the BIGGEST!

Eggplant has a lot of uses–being mild it will take on many of the flavors around it.  Experiment!– You won’t be discouraged–
