Low Fat Baba Ghanoush & Beautiful Lunch Bag

When I was at Costco the other day buying xmas prezzies and huge portions of veggies and staples like dijon mustard and quinoa I stumbled across this. It looks like a handbag but is actually an insulated lunch bag! Sorry if this is old news to you but I'd never seen one before.
Needless to say I was stoked. No more looking silly getting healthy food to work with me!
Now, I know this isn't traditional because I've left out the tahini but it still tastes great and your waistline will thank you!

Baba Ghanoush (Low Fat)
Makes 4 serves
Juice of 1 lemon
1 large eggplant
1 tbsp fresh parsley
1/4 tsp aesofatida
2 tsp ground cumin
  • Preheat oven to 180
  • Cut Eggplant in half lengthwise and pop on a non stick tray
  • Roast until tender (40 mins? depends on the oven and size)
  • Scoop out the soft insides of the eggplant
  • Combine all other ingredients
  • Blend to desired consistency (I like it both smooth and chunky)
  • Enjoy as a dip with veggies, crackers, in sandwiches/wraps or as a dressing for a salad/veggies
This one is a great addition to your veggie and dip platter- too bad this tasted so good there's none left for everyone else tomorrow! Never fear, I made a couple of other dips to bring but I wasn't about to put the oven on in 30+ degrees to make more. If you like eggplant, give this dip a try- you'll love it :)


I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! xxx

    1. Haha that bag looks really cool :)
      I've never heard of Ghanoush before and never even seen an egg plant - I don think we have them here! But I'm sure it's nice :)

    2. That's a really nice lunch bag! What a great find. :)

      I've never had Baba Ghanoush before, but I should try it. I'm not a big fan of eggplant, but who knows. I might like it.

    3. Wow that bag really is beautiful! Definitely a great find! I love all things eggplant. I've had this amazing spicy/sour eggplant salad before from the WHole Foods prepared section but I can never find it anymore and for some reason this reminded me of it :) Definitely a great addition to a crudite platter! Have a very happy holiday!
