    Baba ganoush! I love how those 2 words roll off the tongue. If you are unfamiliar with this dish, baba ganoush is a Levantine dish. It’s made of mashed eggplant, tahini, olive oil, lemon and garlic. This eggplant dip is traditionally served as a snack, appetizer and can be eaten alongside other main dishes with pita or bread. This glossy fruit, yes it’s a fruit, is a highly versatile and functional food — not to mention, healthy. Eggplants are rich in vitamin c, vitamin K, dietary fiber (which is important to maintaining a balanced diet), folic acid and contain almost no cholesterol or saturated fat. Because of this recipes like baba ganoush have been known to reduce heart disease and eliminate some of the bad LDL cholesterol that clogs arteries and veins.
