Delicious. I didn’t have nearly enough parsley and I added tomatoes, roasted bell peppers, and olives for toppings. The pickled vegetables made the dish.
All I could taste was the parsley. I looked at other recipes and found the most parsley that was used was 1 tbsp. I tried adding more garlic and lemon to balance it out, but it didn’t work. I think next time, I’ll leave out the parsley and just use a little bit for garnish.
Hi. I just mixed up the quick pickles in preparation for trying this recipe tonight. Add the 2 tablespoons white vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon sugar and 18 salt. Mix. Let sit and drain off any excess liquid before using.
Some how I’m missing the part of the recipe where it instructs on making the quick pickled veggies? The Eggplant was very good.
It’s in step 3! For quick pickles, in a small bowl combine the next six ingredients (through salt). Cover and chill until ready to
Delicious! The parsley and lemon make the dip so fresh tasting and the pickle relish topping added color and zest. Delicious!
Very tasty! Not difficult to make. I like the flatbread, but I really loved the baba ghanoush and will use it as a dip and a salad dressing. The quick pickled veg also add a nice touch.
I think non-WFPB folks will love it, too.
Very easy to make, delicious!
