Smokey Baba Ghannouj

Baba Ghannouj fun facts: no one really knows why Baba Ghannouj was given such a name. You see, in Arabic, Baba means "daddy" and Ghannouj means "pampered" or "spoiled". So whether this recipe was invented by an old guy with "Ghannouj" as a family name (which is entirely possible in that region) or for some old, flirty, spoiled sultan, the name is surely a fun one to say!

And in honour of these friendships, we bring you this timeless chewy, fudgy brownie recipe which is worthy of being a delicious bribe.
