The Lebanese Recipes Kitchen (The home of delicious Lebanese Recipes and Middle Eastern food recipes) invites you to try Moutabel Recipe. Enjoy the Middle Eastern Cuisine and learn how to make Moutabel.  

Moutabel is a spicier version of baba ghannouj. Not only is it easy to make, it is even better the next day.

Prep Time:
15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes


3 eggplants
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/3 cup tahini paste
1 tablespoon minced garlic
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2-1/4 teaspoon pepper depending on taste
1-3 green chile pepper (depending on taste)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place eggplant on lightly greased baking sheet. Roast for 30 minutes, or until eggplant is tender. Once roasted, remove from oven and allow to cool.

Once eggplants have cooled, peel the skins. They should come off fairly easy. If you are having a tough time, just scoop the eggplant from the skin with a spoon. Set aside.

In a food processor, combine and blend tahini, garlic, and peppers. Add in eggplant and blend well. Add in olive oil.

Remove from food processor and place in serving bowl. Stir in lemon juice and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to three days.
