Last night, while Oliver still had the grill going from the burgers, he tossed on two eggplants to roast while we ate dinner. After dinner he mixed them up into a baba ganoush. I love having a little homemade baba ganoush on hand; it's a great snack to offer when friends drop by. Just surround the bowl with torn bits of french bread, slices of radish, carrots, endives (any crunchy thing made of real food that you have available) and leave out on the counter for all to nibble and enjoy! Consider keeping it ready in the fridge for when all your holiday guests begin to arrive for the long holiday.
