A Brief History of Babaghanoush


Babaghanoush is the most popular of the G’NOSH gourmet dips (don’t tell the others though) so we figured you might want to know a little more about it!

Babaghanoush actually originates from Levant and is known as a Middle Eastern/Lebanese dish, mostly enjoyed as a starter or side. The name itself comes from the Arabic phrase ‘baba gannuj’, in which ‘baba’ means father and ‘gannuj’ can mean pampered.

What you may not realise is that this super yummy dip holds a variety of vitamins, including vitamins A and C, as well as some vital minerals, one being iron.

Babaghanoush is primarily made with eggplant (aubergine) and tahini but this Mediterranean treat can accompany and compliment so much more! Try it with this awesome Ras El Hanout Lamb. It’s perfect a summer treat at a BBQ with lots of flavour,  texture and pure goodness chucked in too!

If you’re looking for a really easy (but just as tasty) way to enjoy our G’NOSH Babaghanoush, simply use it as a dip with rustic bread sticks or cut up fresh vegetables. Alternatively, dollop on top of some rice or side vegetables, which will add a delicious smokey, creamy taste.

G’NOSH’s Babaghanoush uses authentic ingredients including Lebanese roasted eggplant which is mixed with tahini, Greek yoghurt, parsley, garlic and a splash of lemon juice. These crucial components give the dish its much-loved smokey and sweet taste, making it the perfect accompaniment for summer picnics and barbeques!

Enjoy all!
