We are taking liberties on the translation, but baba means father and well, Ghanoush just sounds cool. Eggplant is a vegetable we love, plus it is delicious and we wanted to re-create this dip, Outlaw style. Although this dip works wonders as a dip for fresh veggies, it is also fantastic when paired with fresh sourdough bread. Most Baba Ghanoush recipes require removal of the eggplant skin, but not here – that’s where most of the nutrients can be found.

I have been vegetarian for the past 12 years, a transitional vegan for the last few years, and am now committed to eating only plant-based foods. I moved towards eating more plant-based foods because I care about the health of my family. I have compassion for animals. And I know a vegan lifestyle is better for the planet.
