I decided to get my blog back going because I am tired of making SWEET recipes and then forgetting where I got the recipe or what things I did to mess it up and make it better. So BrokenYolks is back in business!!! If you read my blog, AWESOME, if you don't...then I have a GREAT means of tracking my cooking exploits.
Have you ever eaten at Garbanzo's? That place is the Mediterranean/Greek equivalent to Cafe Rio, healthy, fresh ingredients. Unfortunately, the closest Garbanzo to me is on the other side of town and I have a hard time justifying the expense of gas to get yummy Greek food...ESPECIALLY when I can make it myself at home!!! I found a KILLER recipe for Baba Ghanoush and Pita Bread from KING ARTHUR FLOUR!!! Can you believe it? A flour company has a great recipe for Baba Ghanoush?!
3 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
2 teaspoons instant yeast
2 teaspoons King Arthur Easy-Roll Dough Improver (I totally didn't use this)
2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large eggplant (about 1 pound)
3 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup tahini paste1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3/4 to 1 teaspoon salt
chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Wash the eggplant and char the outside. You can do this on a grill, or directly over the flame on a gas stove. Turn the eggplant so each section of its skin gets blackened and crusty.
