Baba Gha-Hummus

"I came up with this recipe because I had an eggplant I wanted to use. I noticed, when looking at my favorite recipes for hummus and baba ghanoush, that they were quite similar, so I combined the two, making a large amount of dip with half the work. I make this dish for parties. Leftovers are great for snacks and sandwiches (especially served in a pita with lettuce and roasted peppers)." --CL Reader
