Unfortunately the the weather didn’t allow to barbecue outside, I had to prepare it in the kitchen. Prepared outside or inside, the dish is promising. It is definitely worth to try.

  1. Prick the aubergines and barbecue until really soft for about 15 minutes. This gives the dip a deep smoky flavour. You can also do it in the oven for 30 minutes at 200 °C. Allow to cool.
  2. When cool enough to handle, slice in half and scoop out the pulp into a mixing bowl. Add the garlick, lemon juice, tahini and a little salt and pepper. Blitz until smooth, then add the parsley and keep the baba ganoush covered until ready to serve.
  3. To make the burgers, combine the mixed minde with the spice mix, chickpeas, apricots, egg, and mint.
  4. Divide into 6 equal-sized (about 170 grams each) patties. Barbecue for 8 – 10 minutes perside until cooked through.
  5. Warm the buns on the barbecue. Fill each with a burger, salad and a dollop of baba ganoush.
