Poor Man's Caviar

Story location: Home / food_and_drink /

Also known as Baba Ghanoush. There are lots of different recipes for this, but the one here is based on one I saw on television years ago. I had another go at making it again at the weekend and the results were quite good.


  • Aubergine
  • Garlic (entire bulb)
  • Seasoning (eg. salt/pepper/chilli powder)
  • Tahini or sesame paste/oil (optional)

Prick the aubergine with a fork and roast in a medium oven (gas mark 6) for around 45 minutes. About half way through, put the garlic in to roast as well.
Let the aubergine cool. Cut in half and scoop out the flesh - it should have gone very soft. Squeeze the garlic out of each clove and add to the aubergine 'mush'. Mix the two together, adding any seasoning and sesame.

To serve: spread on toast or naan bread. Grill until nice and hot.
