CtBF: Baba ganoush

This was actually quite tasty, I used cayenne for the heat, and toasted sesame seeds for the garnish.
Did not charred the eggplants (lazy and can't stand too long at the stove while nursing a bad knee), only needed to roast the two small globes I bought (halved) for 30 mins.
 I paired it with fragrant coconut spiced pork (instead of lamb) on mini black pepper poppadums.
Both elements equally good on toasted rye bread.

  1. Emily your dinner looks amazing! I love the sound of the pork you paired with the baba ganoush. I hope your knee feels better soon.

  2. My comment is showing as from "Unknown", so I'll just add that this is Teresa from One Wet Foot!

  3. Emily, that looks so delicious. I really enjoyed the recipe as did my taste testers this week. Will definitely be making this again.

  4. Nice food pairings, Emily. Always so different from what I would do. I liked this recipe. Coconut spiced pork. Hmmm, sounds good. And, for what it's worth, I have a bad knee also!

  5. Looks great, Emily! Hope your knee is on the mend.

  6. I agree with the others - the coconut spiced pork sounds delicious!
    I hope your knee continues to recover.
