This Keto Charred Eggplant Dip (also known as Baba Ganoush) is a great low-carb dip that’s packed with flavor!

To go along with our Keto Pita Chips we figured we needed a delicious Keto Baba Ganoush to scoop up and man, this one is perfect.

Sometimes I feel like Baba Ganoush is a little on the bland side, sort of like hummus. Well, not this one! To up the flavors, we start by charring the eggplant and the serranos under the broiler until the skin is charred and the inner eggplant is tender then we chop that all up and mix with garlic, cumin, lemon, cayenne pepper, and tahini.

The result is a rich and delicious dip that’s perfect for the keto diet. With only 4.5g net carbs per serving and over 80% fat is perfect for low-carb / high-fat macros.
