Baba Ganoush 2 (with onion and mayo)

I can't eat eggplant. This leaves me at the mercy of my chefs when it comes to making baba ganoush. This is the recipe I've made for years, that is until Frank came onboard. He's not into the onion and mayo; hence, the other baba recipe posted on the website. Cleo prefers this recipe. To understand the issue, I do what Jews do ~ I ask the Rabbi. Rabbi Aryeh likes mayo, lots of it. Makes me want to do what lots of Jews do ~ ask another Rabbi! More mayo does not seem like a prescription for world peace.

So, I'm posting this recipe and all jokes aside, we have 2 recipes and 3 opinions. You choose!

Kosher Status: Parve
Number of servings: 1 1/2 cups, 8 - 12 servings
Main Ingredient(s): Eggplant
Preparation Time: 00:20
Cooking Time: 00:20
Skill Level: 1 - Easy (1 Easy - 5 Hard)
Estimated POINT value:


  • 1 large eggplant, roasted (about 1 1/2 cups pulp)
  • 3/4 cup diced onion
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (or more if you like)


Preheat the oven to 400'. Split the eggplant lengthwise. Coat with olive oil. Place, cut side down, onto a cookie sheet. Place into the hot oven until the eggplant is tender. It will start to collapse when it is fully cooked.

Remove from the oven and cool a bit. Scrape out the pulp and discard the skin.

Place all the ingredients, except the mayo, in the food processor. Process until smooth and transfer to a mixing bowl. Stir in the mayo. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
