Medeteranian food pyramid. What a difference from Canada’s food guide.
One of the things that I always like to do to relax after a long trip is to get into the kitchen and cook. Replenishing supplies like my breakfast granola and eggplant dip (baba Ghannouj) which have become staples for our Mediterranean style diet are always fun. I have posted the granola recipe before, but thought that some of you may would appreciate this very healthy version of Baba Ghannouj too. I took my original recipe and added the pepper which I think gives it a richer flavour and the yoghurt adds a nice tang. If you like it hot at a 1/4 tsp chipotle pepper powder too. It makes a great lunch spread or addition to a Middle Eastern meal.
1 medium sized eggplant
1 red pepper (capsicum)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup taheen, (sesame paste)
1/2 cup yoghurt (Greek style preferable)
1 tsp. salt
