Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Start the baba ganoush

  • Remove the stem and peel the eggplant; cut the eggplant in half lengthwise. Cut each half lengthwise into 1-inch-thick strips, the strips lengthwise into 1-inch-wide sticks, and the sticks crosswise into 1-inch cubes.
  • Rinse the butter beans.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, stir in the eggplant, season generously with salt and pepper, and cook until starting to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons [2 to 4 TBL] water, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggplant is tender and lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add more oil between batches if needed.
Stir in the butter beans and cook uncovered until warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the eggplant and beans to a large bowl and cover to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.
While the eggplant and beans cook, prepare the vegetable skewers.

2

Assemble the vegetable skewers

  • Trim the ends from the squash; cut the squash in half lengthwise, then crosswise into 1-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Peel the onion and cut in half lengthwise, then lengthwise into 1-inch-wide slices and crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Separate the layers into slices or chunks, as desired.
Thread the tomatoes, squash pieces, and onion pieces onto the wooden skewers, alternating the ingredients. Lightly brush the vegetables with oil and season with salt and pepper.

3

Cook the skewers

In the same pan used for the eggplant, working in batches if needed, add the skewers and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until the vegetables are lightly browned and starting to soften, 6 to 8 minutes.
While the skewers cook, prepare the flatbread and finish the baba ganoush.

4

Toast the flatbread

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the flatbread, turning once, until lightly toasted, about 30 seconds per side. Alternatively, toast it in a toaster. Cut into wedges.

5

Finish the baba ganoush

To the bowl with the eggplant and beans, add the lemon-tahini dressing and season with salt and pepper. Using a fork, masher, or the back of a spoon, coarsely mash until combined. Using a fork or whisk, stir until almost smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the vegetable skewers, baba ganoush, flatbread wedges, feta dip, and olives to a platter and serve.
