Easy Baba Ganoush (Vegan)

You have to try this Easy Baba Ganoush recipe!  My husband is half Turkish, so we eat a lot of Turkish food.  So delicious!  My mother in law typically uses yogurt in her baba ganoush recipe, so we didn’t use hers.

We made this vegan baba ganoush on our own and it came out so good!  Some other Turkish recipes we have on the blog are hummus, white bean salad and red lentil soup.

    1. I actually did add tahini, but forgot to put it in the ingredient list! I edited the post. You might be able to just omit it though.
    2. I subbed avocado oil for the tahini (allergies here as well) and it came out great! A light tasting olive oil would probably work too!
