Coming at ya with the first recipe in a while! I spent a few weeks exploring the motherland then hopped back over the pond for a week of cooking at home in Holland followed by a few days of exploring Budapest. Which brings me to now, dead tired from wandering around every corner of Budapest and from a 15 hour flight delay which resulted in an unplanned night in Budapest (and a few more Hungarian meals).

One of our favorite neighborhoods in Budapest was the Jewish quarter, a trendy hipster’s paradise with food trucks and fusion restaurants tucked into every corner. Which brings me to the recipe today, a happy fusion of eggplant, chickpeas, and tahini in the form of Baba Ganoush Hummus, or as I prefer to call it…Baba-Ga-Hummus!

I worked up this recipe with Anouk during one of our hot kitchen messes, a day in which we cook no less than 147 thousand recipes, using her taste for Mediterranean cuisine and my desire for not spending more than five steps on any given recipe. The result was this easy, way delicious Baba Ganoush Hummus. Enjoy!
