Baba Ghanoush

ImageThis is a wonderful dish made from grilled eggplants.It has a strong smoky flavour especially if the eggplants have been grilled on a charcoal barbecue.

I often serve this a dip with toasted pita bread.However it could also be used as side dish or even a salad if topped with more garnishing.
