Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200oC.
  2. Place the courgette slices onto an ovenproof dish, sprinkle with the cumin seeds, garlic and pepper. Lightly coat with spray oil.
  3. Roast in the oven for about 30 minutes or until lightly golden, stirring every 10 minutes.
  4. Once cooked, remove from the oven, put into a food blender, and add the lemon juice. Blend all the ingredients for a few seconds until you get a nice dip-like consistency.

For a traditional baba ganoush use aubergines instead of courgettes
