We've recently discovered our love for Baba Ghanoush, and I've been wanting to try it for sometime now.
•Cooking Light Grill-Smoked Baba Ghanoush•
I followed the recipe exactly, except used a grill pan over the stove. I imagine the flavor would be even better if done like the directions call, but I wasn't willing to fire up the grill alone 😬. Not the healthiest, but eggplant definitely has some good qualities, right?! If you know me, you know cooking is definitely a way I celebrate and show love, plus I heard "Oh check you out mint2begreen" when @bayoutuna smelled what I was working on. Mission accomplished 😉. Served with grilled pita and also spinach and artichoke dip. It's no @shayarestaurant , but it was delicious. #cleaneats#ish#mediterraneanfood#babaghanoush#healingfood#homemade#grilling#vegetarian#vegan#yum#dips#dinnerdate#lovelanguage 🍆🍋🍃🥖

The Sunset District is almost overwhelmingly spoilt for choice when it comes to great food and variety! Being an advocate for trying new things, I figured I'd try some Mediterranean cuisine that extended beyond my usual lavash and falafels. That's when I discovered Taboun on Parnassus Avenue. It's a cute little place with lovely murals that are reminiscent of your most adventurous dreams of the old Middle East. I had the vegetarian combo, which included my first baba ghanouj (I liked this a lot), my usual hummus (theirs was quite good), feta cheese, onions, a generous amount of pita bread, tabouleh (delicious), dolmades, taboun salad and big falafel balls (LOVED this, more please!). Overall it was a great meal. Very filling and good value for money.
