How to Make Baba Ganoush

We save cook time by peeling and slicing the eggplant. Then we save cleanup time by using parchment paper on the baking sheets.

The parchment paper also helps us make a no oil baba ganoush recipe… saving 100’s of calories and lots of fat. So don’t skip the step (and wax paper is not parchment paper).
