If you have never had Baba Ganoush before you are sooo missing out! Baba Ganoush is an easy to make healthy snack. Homemade Baba Ganoush is perfect forputting in the kids lunch boxes, serving at a party or just because it tastes so dang good!
A few weeks ago the kids and I went apple and veggie picking and ended up with a TON of eggplant and I made freezer meals out of most of it, like my Eggplant Parmesan Freezer Meal. My son begged me to make Baba Ganoush because it is amazing.
What do you serve with Baba Ganouch
Serve homemade baba ganouch with fresh veggies or pita chips. My son likes to dip pita chips in his I prefer carrot sticks, but either one works perfectly. It also works great to have a few different items to dip in it on a platter when you serve it at a party.
How to store Baba Ganouch
Keep covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve. This will keep in the fridge for about 5-6 days if it actually lasts that long in your house, it hardly lasts a day in mine!
