Baba ganoush is a roasted eggplant dip popular in the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine, that is traditionally vegan and gluten-free. Many recipes include tahini as an ingredient, but you can make it without tahini. There are myriad local and regional variations of how to do it; there's not really one right or wrong way to prepare this dish. The only truly essential ingredient in baba ganoush is eggplant, which is roasted to achieve the dish's signature smoky taste. Everything else varies from recipe to recipe.
This baba ganoush recipe has no oil and no tahini, making it a fat-free vegetarian and vegan appetizer or dip that you can enjoy anytime. In addition, all of the ingredients are naturally gluten-free, but you will probably want to read the ingredients on your onion powder carefully to see if there are any gluten-containing hidden additives. Serve it with some wedges of fresh pita bread, or pita chips.

Gather the ingredients. Preheat oven to 400 F.
Slice each of the eggplants in half and pierce with a fork in several places.
Roast in the oven for about 45 minutes, or until soft. If you're not worried about added fat, you can drizzle the eggplants with a bit of olive oil first.
Process eggplant with remaining ingredients until smooth. You can also mash all the ingredients together with a fork if you prefer a slightly chunkier texture. Serve and enjoy!
