I know many of you (ok, probably like 6 of you) were wondering what we were going to do with the eggplants we posted on our Instagram story this weekend. It’s time for the big reveal! Drum roll …… Oh, you read the title of the blog? Well crap.
Even an anticlimactic reveal like that can’t take away from how freaking tasty Steven Michael’s Babaganoush is. Now that many of our close friends are vaccinated, we’ve gone back to having a few people over every Sunday to play video games, basketball, or just hang out. Most of our friends are vegan, so we have a lot of great animal product free recipes in our repertoire, like this Babaganoush.
While Steven Michael was making this, I took absentee cooking to another level. I was not in my usual place with my feet up in the dining room, instead, I was on my Sunny stationary bike working/sweating my little butt off in the garage. Coming back in from my workout to a yummy spread of pitas and Babaganoush was a great perk!
This is seriously delicious. It has a smooth and creamy texture and is packed with great eggplant flavor. The garlic definitely gives it a little bit of a bite, and I couldn’t stop shoveling it into my pie hole.
So invite a few (COVID safe, obviously) friends over, make some dip and get to snacking! Or … just make a bowl for yourself and go to town, I won’t judge.
I’ll see you in a few days with another great recipe!
