Fat Free Baba Ganoush Recipe

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


This baba ganoush (eggplant dip) recipe has no oil and no tahini, making it a fat-free vegetarian and vegan appetizer or dip that you can enjoy any time! I like to spread a little baba ganoush on a flour tortilla with some lettuce and veggies for a quick and healthy low-fat vegetarian sandwich wrap. For a more hummus-like recipe, try this baba ganoush hummus, or, for a spicier version, try this chili lime baba ganoush.


  • 2 eggplants
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 5 cloves minced garlic, preferably roasted
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp parsley


Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

Slice eggplants in half and pierce with a fork in several places. Roast for about 45 minutes, or until soft. Allow to cool slightly, then scoop out inside of eggplant, leaving skin behind.

In a blender or food processor, process eggplant with remaining ingredients until smooth.

Check the ingredients on your onion powder to make sure, but this simple recipe should be gluten-free and safe for vegetarians and vegans with gluten sensitivities. More homemade baba ganoush recipes:

I had to do some changes, like processing fresh red onion, adding some flaxseed and caraway, but it was amazing. I used it like ""refried beans"" in a wrap with arugula, chopped tomato, nuts and cheese.
