From: Happy Food,
Sick of all the tasteless sandwiches that seem to be on offer in the shops? It’s time to take matters in to your own hands with a tasty and healthy homemade lunch. Our lovely Wahanda copywriter Melanie has shared with us her recipe for baba ganoush, which makes a great lunch or mid-afternoon snack.
Warning: this delicious dip contains garlic, so although it’s a fantastic boost for your heart and immune system, it’s probably best not to eat it just before that important meeting.
You will need:
Pre-heat the oven to 180. Prick the aubergines’ skins with a fork and then char by placing on a lit stove and turning (they will go black and wrinkly). Place in the oven on a tray and cook for 30 mins (until soft).
Combine all other ingredients in a bowl. Scoop the flesh out of the aubergines into the mixture and blend until smooth.
Serve cool with vegetable sticks or pitta, or as a spread on sandwiches or crispbreads. For a more work-friendly version, you can always add less garlic.
It's easy enough to decide you want to eat well - the hard part is finding the right foods to keep you healthy and satisfy your tastebuds. The Wahanda Tasters have lots of food and drink ideas to have you looking good, feeling good and bursting with energy in no time. And no, they don't all involve wheatgrass.See my profile »
