Home made Baba Ganoush with Garlic & Thyme Cheese Bread

Sometimes we just feel like a fresh, light and healthy lunch hey...

And let me tell you, freshly baked Cheese bread with a cold baba ganoush is a marriage made in heaven!

Prepare your baba ganoush a day ahead or at the beginning of the week so the flavours can get to know each other... It can easily last a week if refrigerated in a covered container.

If you have a got a child who is a little champion and likes aubergines, you are winning!

You can use our plain Cheese bread to make a healthy and easy afternoon snack that provides good quality source of energy, fibre and antioxidants for your little ones too!

Here is what you need:

2 big or 3 medium imperfect aubergines

Juice of 2 lemons

3 tbs of organic tahini

2 garlic cloves finely crushed

2 tbs of a good, robust olive oil

Sea salt flakes to taste

Fresh mint to serve

1 box of frozen Garlic & Thyme Brazilian Cheese Bread


1 - Roast the aubergines in a very hot oven until they are slightly burned (if they they start to explode in the oven, don't panic, it is time to remove them!)

2 - Using a deep bowl, cut the aubergines in half, scrapping the flesh and discarding the skin; if a bit of skin goes into the mix is okay as they add a great depth to the dip!

3 - Add crushed garlic, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil and salt flakes to taste.

4 - Mix well until the dip is homogenised and the aubergines flesh is no longer in big parts

Refrigerate at least overnight before serving

For the Cheese Bread:

Attention: Do not defrost the cheese breads before cooking and make sure the oven is very hot prior to following the instructions below

1 - Pre heat the oven to 220C degrees, fan Forced

2 - Space FROZEN cheese breads 1.5cm apart on a shallow tray, lined with baking paper

3 - Bake them until they are golden brown (12 -14 minutes)

Serve the baba ganoush with a drizzle of olive oil and mint and enjoy it with a freshly baked cheese bread!

Please note if your oven does not get very hot, you might need higher temperature (like 230C) and bakeit for longer for the cheese breads to raise well. The cooking time is an indication of what works for most household ovens.
