Baba Ganoush

This creamy dip made with roasted eggplants is a Middle Eastern favorite. This recipe omits the oil and heavy amounts of tahini normally used in baba ganoush in order to bring you a truly healing dip option. Enjoy this dip with your favorite crudités, such as celery sticks, carrot sticks, cucumber slices, lettuce leaves, or asparagus spears, or enjoy it with the Rosemary Potato Flatbread (recipe in Brain Saver Protocols, Cleanses & Recipes).

Eggplant thins out dirty blood filled with fats and poisons, which can help stop blood clots from occurring inside our veins and eases the heart, too, allowing it to not overwork as it pumps.

This recipe comes from Brain Saver Protocols, Cleanses & Recipes, the companion book to Medical Medium Brain Saver. These two essential books about our most complex organ—the brain—dive deep into why people all over the world are suffering with mental health and brain-related symptoms and conditions. Brain Saver unveils the why behind more than 100 brain- and nervous system–related symptoms, diseases, and disorders; Brain Saver Protocols, Cleanses & Recipes reveals the truth about how to heal in even more detail (including cleanses, recipes, supplement protocols, and so much more).

Baba Ganoush


  • 2 medium eggplants, cut in half
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp tahini (optional; leave out if fat-free)
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ½ pitted Medjool date
  • ¼ tsp sea salt (optional)
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves, finely chopped, plus more to serve
  • ¼ cup pomegranate seeds, to serve


Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Arrange the eggplant halves on the baking sheet, flesh-side facing down; then bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until soft. Remove the eggplant from the oven; then put aside to cool.

Once the eggplant is cool, peel it and place in a food processor. Add the garlic, tahini (if using), lemon zest, lemon juice, and date. Add the optional sea salt if using. Process until smooth but still with a bit of texture. Add the parsley and mint and pulse briefly until incorporated.

Place the dip in a serving bowl and top with pomegranate seeds and a bit more finely chopped mint. Serve immediately or keep refrigerated until needed.


  • The tahini makes the Baba Ganoush creamier and richer; however, if you are trying to lower your fats, you can keep it out and you’ll still get a great result.
  • While high-quality sea salt or mountain rock salt is an optional inclusion in this recipe, the recipe is more healing without salt. Over time, you may wish to reduce or exclude the salt.
