"Great as an appetizer served with pita chips or fresh sliced cucumber. Also a wonderful addition to a pita sandwich."

Came out so smooth and creamy and ever so tasty. So very easy to make too. Mine came out thick, but to water it down a bit added some water until it was the right consistency. Took a page from the already posted picture and sprinkled the top with some toasted cumin seeds and a drizzle of olive oil. Yum. Thank for sharing, Galley_Wench. Made it for The AmaZ'ing Race 2023 and What's on the Menu tag games.

Excellent and easy to make. I added just a touch more lemon and salt, but I used home cooked chickpeas which were probably less salty and my lemon may have been small (I didn't measure the juice). Bill gives this the thumbs up, being our biggest baba ghanoush fan here.
