Mutabal is an extremely delicious Middle Eastern recipe I’m sure you’ll love! It’s one of my favorite vegetarian spread recipes and definitely among my top 3 favorite Middle Eastern recipes. I made it vegan, so I skipped yogurt, but it turned out just as good!

This recipe is similar to my eggplant caviar recipe, which is a staple dish here in Romania. Give it a try too! You’ll love it, I’m sure. :

Author:
Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: Middle Eastern
Serves: 6+ servings
Ingredients
  • 3 medium-sized eggplants
  • 5-6 Tbsps tahini (sesame paste)
  • 3 Tbsps lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil + another one for drizzling
  • freshly chopped parsley leaves
  • sea salt, to taste
Instructions
  1. Rinse the eggplants and heat the grill pan.
  2. Grill the eggplants on each side; don’t forget to turn them over every 10 minutes or so. Grill them until they are covered with a black crust.
  3. Peel the eggplants, cleaning off the black crust. Put them on a wooden platter and let them drain for at least half an hour. The liquid is bitter. The longer you drain them, the sweeter they’ll be.
  4. Mix eggplants using a hand mixer (not a blender or a food processor!). Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth.
  5. Serve with fresh chopped parsley on top.
Notes
– When buying eggplants, choose the thin or small-medium ones because they have <g class="gr_ gr_70 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar multiReplace" id="70" data-gr-id="70">less</g> seeds and a sweeter taste.
– Don’t store Baba Ganoush in metal containers. It will turn black and change its taste.
