Baba ghanoush is a Levantine dish of cooked eggplant mixed with tahini (made from sesame seeds), olive oil, and various seasonings.
The traditional preparation method is for the eggplant to be baked or broiled over an open flame before peeling, so that the pulp is soft and has a smoky taste. It is a typical starter, often eaten as a dip with pita bread, and is sometimes added to other dishes.
