Babagannuş, another traditional Turkish meal. Babagannuş from Arab language (and where this dish came from)  Baba Ghanoush is mashed broiled eggplant mix with various seasonings.
in Turkey, where a similar meze is called patlıcan salatası (meaning "eggplant salad"). Patlıcan salatası is made with mashed eggplants while baba ghanoush is cut not mashed. The baba ghanoush can be found (with cut eggplants) in southern Turkey, especially in Antakya. Also as the name "Baba" means father in Turkish, in the regions where Arab population is large, it can be known as Abu-Gannoush
Servings 4.
 4 eggplant medium size.
 4 ~ 5 leeks (only white part). Chop roughly.
 ½ bunch celery (about 15 stems),chop finely.
 Approximately 100 grams of white cheese.
 2 ~ 3 cloves garlic. Crushed and finely chopped.
 olive oil (I use ½ cup)
 Salt and pepper to taste.
 Enough cheddar cheese for topping, shaved/ grated.

How to make:
1) Broil Eggplant over the fire or roasted in the oven until the meat is completely tender. Peel the skin off and chop eggplant's meat finely.
2) Combine the eggplant with all other ingredients (except grated cheddar cheese.)Taste the flavor.
3) Put in a baking dish, sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake in oven at 160⁰ C to melt the cheese. Cover dish with aluminum foil so it will not burn on surface. Continue bake for about 15 minutes more.

Serve while warm with bread and other meat menu.



  1. I'm drooling over this dish. That's all I have to say. It looks fantastic.

  2. Oh, my, your photos are making my mouth water! How utterly delicious this must be. Eggplant is one of the foods my family doesn't seem to like, but this dish may change their minds. It looks wonderful!
