Grilled Eggplant Baba Ghanoush

Wow your tastebuds with our veggie-filled Grilled Eggplant Baba Ghanoush. A little smoky, a bit tangy and kind of creamy, this light, summery Mediterranean-inspired dip is as equally delicious as it is nutritious.

  • Grilled Eggplant Baba Ghanoush
  • Ingredients
    • 3 small eggplants (about 8 oz. each)
    • 1 ½ tsp. kosher salt, divided
    • 3 cloves garlic, divided
    • 4 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, divided
    • 1 Tbsp. butter, melted

    • ½ tsp. black pepper
    • ⅓ cup crumbled goat cheese
