Baba ghanoush was one of my favourite recipes before I went onto a fodmaps diet. In fact, anything that had eggplant in it was good in my books. Baba ghanoush is an Arabic dip similar to hummus minus the chickpeas but uses eggplant, garlic, lemon juice, tahini and cumin. Since going onto a fodmaps diet the Tahini had to go and so to does the garlic. Hence this fodmap friendly eggplant dip was created.
