      Zucchini Baba Ganoush
      2 zucchini, split in half lengthwise
      1 tbs olive oil
      1 clove garlic, peeled
      2-3 tbs tahini (sesame paste)
      2 tbs lemon juice
      2 tbs chopped parsley
      salt and black pepper to taste
      2 tbs pine nuts, toasted, for garnish
      pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
      Pre-heat the oven to 400°.
      Slice each zucchini in half, lengthwise, and drizzle on the olive oil. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and roast in the oven for 30 min or until the zucchinis are fully soft.
      Allow to cool enough to handle and scoop the flesh out of each zucchini half. Add it to a food processor along with the garlic clove, tahini and lemon juice.

      Puree until smooth and stir in the chopped parsley, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes if using. Serve with the toasted pine nuts along side pita bread for dipping. Serves 2 as a meal or 4 as an appetizer
