Baba Ghanoush is a creamy Middle Eastern dip made with eggplant and tahini that’s usually scooped up as a snack with flatbread. Inspired by its flavors, we’ve created this simple, healthy side dish that is satisfying as a light lunch or served next to Oregano-Marinated Grilled Chicken.
What to buy: Israeli couscous has larger, pearl-shaped granules and is more glutinous than the smaller, more grainlike North African variety.
Make sure to buy roasted, not raw, tahini. If you’re not sure which is which, check the label for roasted sesame seeds.
