  1. Wow this was sooo good! I love how easy it is and the simple ingredients! I followed the recipe exactly, except I did add a healthy pinch of crushed red pepper flakes halfway through baking to give it a kick, which turned out great! I like the texture of this much better than baba ganoush. I will keep this recipe on hand for a quick and easy appetizer!

  2. I made this last night and it did not disappoint!! It was so delicious and I’m sad there weren’t leftovers. I didn’t have time to make the homemade crackers, so I’ll definitely have to try that next time!

  3. OH my goodness, this was sooooo good! I usually make baba ganoush with my eggplants, but wanted something less “heavy”….this was absolutely perfect, and I didn’t have to alter the recipe one bit! Great recipe!! 🙂

  4. First time here. Loved your site and the recipes. Can’t resist dropping a comment here seeing the cool snaps. Will definitely try this recipe and let you know..

    I loved your serving bowl:)

    Eagerly waiting for more recipes.
