Baba Ganoush is one of my favorite condiments! It's creamy, rich & smoky, which makes it feel indulgent even though it’s really not. Charred roasted eggplants give it a touch of richness and the tahini makes it extra smooth and creamy.
My recipe for labneh - also known as yogurt cheese - is a cross between a thick fromage frais and fromage blanc. It is of Lebanese origin and very simple to make. It is simply yogurt strained with a bit of salt to remove the whey - delicious.
If you've had shawarma, you've probably had these. They're a great way to learn fermenting and use food waster (beet water) as a feature ingredient! Awesome in a sandwich, especially if it has hummus or other beans!
You will wonder how so few ingredients can possibly taste this good! A recipe for a smoky, garlicky, tangy, savoury, creamy dip that goes well with a huge range of dishes. Also, long-term preservation of aubergine in the freezer and its many uses.
