They call it moutabal and it is the authentic, Lebanese version of baba ganoush!
Personally, in addition to the fact that I really like to eat it with a spoon, I also really like to spread it on bread and enjoy it for a healthy, easy, quick dinner.
The basic ingredients for making moutabal are eggplant, tahini, lemon, garlic, salt and olive oil. If you have these very simple ingredients in your kitchen right now you can make the perfect Lebanese eggplant salad.
