Our Dips

Babaganush


Our Babaganush is made using fresh eggplants, organic tahini and spices. Babaganush has traveled the world around, and many countries claim ownership on its recipe. I am aware of two distinctly different recipes, the Middle Eastern one, over which many political debates have ensued, and the European recipe which I attribute solely to my mum. Our Babaganush is made and sold fresh.

Serving Suggestions

Babaganush is a great healthy snack at any time, it is great with fresh celery or carrot sticks for the kids, or on bread.
“Baba”, as we like to call it, will go well with fresh veggies and it is on particularly good terms with fresh tomatoes, or as companion for cheese and crackers.

Corriander, Flat Parsley and Sesame Dip

It took a great deal of patience hiding in the kitchen pantry, watching mum as she mixes all the ingredients in the bowl, checking over her shoulder to see that no one is watching the process.

Passion for good food and love of life is all that went in, and the taste…? Why not try for your self.

Our Tahini will go fabulously well with our Hummus, or on top of our beetroot dip, at our home it goes with just about anything, or on it’s own.

Organic Hummus


Our Hummus is made using certified organic Australian chickpeas, Organic Tahini (sesame paste), Cold press (virgin) Australian olive oil and spices. It is made and sold fresh.

From time to time our chickpeas still have the husk on them and the dip takes on slightly darker shade, at times these pieces of husk are visible as brown “spots” in the dip. Husk left on the chickpea enhances the quality and wholesomeness of our product.

Our hummus, made with the right balance of chickpeas and sesame seeds, provides you with a rich protein, and is therefore a perfect food for vegans.
