This dreamy, deep, flavorful dip is one of my favorites. Have you tried it? It's BABA GANOUSH! AKA- Eggplant Dip. I'm using cinnamon and cumin in this because it builds some intense flavor and then topping it off with paprika takes it up another notch. I've often ordered this dip alongside some yummy falafels here in NYC where they are TOPS and it's the best thing ever. So turns out making it at home... not so hard at all, guys! Check out the recipe below and make it!
