Typically known as Baba Ganoush, this eggplant dip differs from the traditional version in that it’s missing tahini (or ground sesame seeds). Despite its ho-hum looks, this eggplant dip will truly surprise and impress you with its delicious flavor and soft texture interspersed with some meaty eggplant bits. Serve it with your favorite veggies or pita, and turn any leftovers into a sandwich spread.

How to Make It

Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low. Stir together eggplants, garlic, lemon juice, honey, salt, paprika, cumin, and pepper in saucepan. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until eggplant is very tender, about 25 minutes. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 10 minutes. Uncover and mash any large pieces of eggplant with a potato masher or the back of a spoon. Transfer to a medium bowl, and sprinkle with parsley.
