Updated: Aug 31, 2022

Tangy and versitile, the star of this weeks "What's for Shabbat?" is easier than a store bought apple pie.

My serving suggestion. Farfalle pasta, zucchini and basil. Unconventional and delicious.

It's getting to the end of the month here at Casa de la Blanca. Its been very inspirational July, filled with delicious sides, snacks and entrees. Now we are down to whatever I have left in the refrigerator and cupboards. Thus, we have the 4 ingredient no cook paleo, vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free Baba Ganoush. I have had this before in a Mediterranean restaurant served with pita bread, but I had yet to make it on my own. I am very pleased with my version. I hope you try it in your own kitchen.


What I love most about my newest creation is the versatility of it. I first tried to bake it into a pastry. The original plan was to make a vegan beef broth soup to accompany it. The pastries were good, but did not make the quality cut for That Vegan Jew on Welfare. Then I decided "why not throw it on pasta." And that's what we had for Shabbat.

This recipe take 5 min of prep time, about 3 minute in the food processor and serves 4-6 depending how served.


The supplies needed are: measuring spoons. Large capacity food processor, measuring cups, cutting board and paring knife, and a small spatula. You will need the following ingredients: 1 purple eggplant, 3/4 cup tahini, 1 tsp course kosher salt, and 1 large tbs dried parsley flakes.

Step 3 Process on high until you have a smooth, creamy paste. You may have to remove the top to mash down some of the eggplant.


And now you have a versatile dip, pasta topper, or spread. Enjoy!
