This Paleo snack recipe baba ghanoush is also an Arabic dip or condiment similar to hummus but instead of chickpeas, uses eggplants and is perfectly Paleo so it’s great as an alternative to eat what you normally dipped into hummus.

Paleo Snack Recipe Baba Ghanoush – Also great as a dip
The use of roasted eggplant gives it a great smokey flavour which is just amazing with the tahini, lemon juice and garlic. Tahini is a sesame butter very popular in Arabic cuisine.
I opt for organic vegetables. It’s important to use coconut oil as a cooking fat for A true Paleo version. The tahini I used is store bought and I made sure it’s organic and free from all the chemical crap.
This is one of those dishes that you can make and store for later consumption
This recipe makes 8 servings. Has a prep time of about 15 minutes and 35 minutes cooking time.
The whole dish for 8 servings contains
2 cloves garlic minced
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp tahini
