Taste Test: Baba Ganoush with Peppers and Zucchini

Last week students in the 4th grade at the East Somerville Community School tasted baba ganoush with peppers and zucchini slices. Baba ganoush is an eggplant puree made with garlic, tahini and lemon juice. The eggplant and garlic were harvest from the East Somerville Community School's garden, planted and tended by students, teachers and parents during the spring and summer. If you would like to make baba ganoush with roasted garlic for you family, you can try our recipe! Serve with veggie slices or pita bread.

Baba ganoush with peppers and zucchini!

We are happy to report that 94% of the students tried the baba ganoush and 68% of them said they would eat it again! We are so proud of them for trying new foods.


Some of the students shared their thoughts about the baba ganoush. Our personal favorite is "taste's AMAZING! I want to eat it all day, it smells good too! The pepper is the best!"


Thank you to the 4th grade teachers at East Somerville Community Schools who welcomed us into their classroom!
