Today we are back with a simple but delicious Baba Ganoush Recipe from the third book from Monday Morning Cooking Club - It's Always About The Food.
The Baba Ganoush is one of our favorite middle easter dips. The mild smokiness that comes from charring the eggplant on a barbecue is simply wonderful. The more charred the skin, the smokier the flavor.

Juice of 1/2 lemon, or to taste
