Notes

baba-ganoush-middle-eastern-eggplant-spread3

After making those French Sesame Crackers last week, I was craving a really flavorful Paleo accompaniment. They make a perfect pairing!

I prefer to use Chinese eggplants because they don’t seem to have the bitterness the larger eggplants sometimes have.
