Recipe: Grilled Baba Ghanoush


This delicious eggplant based dip is fairly similar to hummus. It’s wonderful as a healthy party food, and great for dipping veggies, crackers or pita.

Grilled Baba Ghanoush Recipe


  • 1 eggplant, quartered length-wise
  • 1/2 t garlic, minced
  • 2 T lemon juice
  • 3 T tahini (pureed sesame seeds)
  • 1 t smoked paprika
  • 1/2 t cumin
  • olive oil, for coating and drizzling
  • sesame seeds, toasted, for garnish


Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 to 475ºF, and set up your GrillGrates. Rub the eggplant quarters with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Grill on both cut sides until eggplant is softened, about 15 minutes.

Peel the skins from the eggplant. Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Process to a smooth paste. Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil and toasted sesame seeds. Serve with cut veggies, crackers or pita.
