I never liked eggplant due to its texture, it prevented me from enjoying the flavour. Babaganoush however is a very yummy and easy to make dip. It’s right there next to hummus and tzatziki. Consume with pita or any crusty bread.

Golden soufflé

I baked a soufflé yesterday with the new dish Julia bought me for my birthday. It turned out really well. An important part of a yummy soufflé is the crunchy bits on the sides/bottom/top.
