Before blending together your next batch of baba ghanoush, grab some zucchini from the garden and grill them p until they're charred and smoky to create a delicious Zucchini Baba Ghanoush.
Ingredients
  • 4 whole zucchini
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • ½ lemon, zest and juiced
Garnish
  • Chopped roasted hazelnuts
  • Fresh mint, chopped
  • Pinch of paprika
  • Pinch of zaatar
  • Drizzle of olive oil
Instructions
  1. Using a hot grill (I used our charcoal grill for added smoky flavor), cook the zucchini until all sides are blackened. Use tongs to turn it every so often.
  2. Once done, remove and place in a bowl and cover with foil and allow until easy to handle or room temperature. Once done, carefully remove all the outer charred skin, leaving the soft flesh.
  3. Add zucchini flesh to food processor along with tahini, garlic, lemon zest and juice and spices and pulse just a few times to mix everything together. Don't over mix or it will get too thin.
  4. Once done, pour onto a shallow bowl and garnish with mint, spices, chopped nuts and a good drizzle of olive oil.
