Baba Ghanoush

I am a huge fan of Middle Eastern Food and Baba Ghanoush is on the top of my list. Not only is it healthy, it’s vegetarian and most diets. It is a great dip and a great spread. You can serve it very similar as you would Hummus but with less carbohydrates. Some people add flat…

However, my husband bought a new grill and he loves to grill everything so after much encouragement, we finally tested this recipe on the grill. It was worth it because it was delicious and very healthy. If you love salmon and are…
