Baba Ganoush (vegan) / Namaz od patlidžana (veganski)

There are about a million and one Baba Ganoush recipes on the internet, but here is also my humble contribution. This spread is really easy to make and super delicious and can be served with pretty much anything you’d serve hummus with. Traditional recipes call for tahini, but I didn’t have any and skipped it. Feel free to add some in for even creamier texture and heartier spread.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 1-2 cups / 0.89 EUR)

½ tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp red pepper flakes (0.03 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.03 EUR)

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Wash the whole eggplant and wipe it dry, then prick its skin with a fork. Place the whole eggplant along with unpeeled garlic on a prepared baking sheet and roast for about an hour, until the eggplant is collapsed and its skin is charred.

Allow everything to cool enough to handle, then scoop the eggplant flesh into a mixing bowl and discard its skin. Squeeze the roasted garlic flesh out of its peel and add to the eggplant along with lemon juice, salt, red pepper, black pepper, cumin and paprika. Using a fork, mash up the eggplant and stir in all of the ingredients. You can definitely do this in a food processor too, but I prefer a bit of texture. Taste and adjust seasoning, then stir in the olive oil and fresh chopped parsley. Serve chilled with some pita bread, fresh veggies, with a salad or in a sandwich. To store, transfer into an airtight container and refrigerate for up to a week.

Na internetu ima otprilike milijun i jedan recept za Baba Ganoush – bliskoistočni tradicionalni namaz od patlidžana, ali evo i moj skromni doprinos. Ovaj je namaz jako jednostavan za pripremiti, a super ukusan, te se može poslužiti sa manje-više svime sa čime bi ste inače poslužili humus. U tradicionalne recepte ide i tahini, međutim ja ga nisam imala kod kuće pa sam ga izostavila. Vi ga slobodno dodajte za još kremastiju teksturu i bogatiji okus.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1-2 šalice / 6,67 kn)

1 srednje veliki patlidžan (3,00 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka (0,50 kn)

1 žlica svježeg limunovog soka (0,50 kn)

½ žličice soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice sušenog čilija u listićima (0,25 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

½ žličice kima u prahu (0,25 kn)

½ žličice dimljene crvene paprike (0,25 kn)

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

Pregršt svježeg peršina (1,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Pećnicu zagrijte na 200°C i protvan obložite papirom za pečenje. Patlidžan operite i posušite krpom, pa mu kožu izbockajte vilicom. Stavite cijeli patlidžan na pripremljeni protvan, skupa sa neoljuštenim cijelim češnjevima češnjaka, pa sve skupa pecite oko sat vremena, sve dok se patlidžan ne uruši, a koža mu mjestimično pocrni.

Pustite da se sve ohladi dovoljno da možete primiti rukom, pa onda meso patlidžana postružite u zdjelu, a kožu bacite. Češnjak istisnite iz ljuski, te dodajte patlidžanu skupa sa limunovim sokom, solju, čilijem, paprom, kimom i paprikom. Vilicom izgnječite patlidžan i sve dobro promiješajte. Možete sve skupa također ubaciti i u multipraktik, ali meni je draže ostaviti malo teksture. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, pa u sve to umiješajte još i maslinovo ulje i sjeckani peršin. Poslužite ohlađeni Baba Ganoush sa pita kruhom, svježim povrćem, sa salatom ili u sendviču. Namaz čuvajte u hladnjaku u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi do tjedan dana.
