Meet baba ghanouche‘s wife: mama ghanouche!There baba ghanouche is reliable and constant, mama ghanouche is a blast of color and coquetry, the perfect contrasting companion to her husband 😉Baba ghanouche, an aubergine dip, uses roasted silky aubergines, so naturally mama ghanouche, this beet dip, would use roasted sweet beetroots.
For simplicity, you may use boiled beetroots, though roasted beetroots would certainly heighten the flavor.
Consumed as a dip or spread, it is equally delicious.
Adapted from Taste of Beirut.
500g roasted or boiled peeled beetroots
2 large lemons, juice
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup tahini
1 Tbsp pomegranate molasses (optional)
Pound the garlic and salt together until you get a paste.
Place the peeled, chopped beets in the food processor with the lemon juice, garlic paste, tahini, and pomegranate molasses (if using).
Garnish and serve at room temperature with some bread.
