There may only be a few ingredients in this baba ganoush recipe but it’s still packed with flavor. Ready in under an hour this slow cooker dish is healthy & versatile.
Eggplant, tahini, lemon, garlic and liquid smoke. That’s it. Baba ganoush is really easy to make. For some reason it didn’t dawn on me to make it in the slow cooker until I got my bottle of pure roasted sesame spread. Then it hit me, duh this is yet another recipe perfect for a slow cooker conversion. Most baba ganoush recipes call for the eggplant to be roasted. We’re not roasting here; we’re putting the eggplant in the slow cooker straight raw. That’s where the liquid smoke comes in. Just a little is needed to add a nice smokey flavor to the dish.
This uses tahini. Don’t worry, it’s whole30 and paleo compliant. Tahini is a condiment made from toasted ground hulled sesame seeds. You should be able to find it at your local grocery store. This cooks quickly, in just an hour or so.Print
