Prime purees

TAKEOUT

July 26, 2006|By SAM SESSA | SAM SESSA,SUN REPORTER

Made from mashed eggplant and spices, baba ghannouj is a light, cool puree best served with soft, warm bread for dipping. We sampled the dish from four local eateries. Here's how they fared:

Egyptian Pizza

542 E. Belvedere Ave., Baltimore -- 410-323-7060

Hours --11 a.m.-11 p.m. daily

Restaurant's estimate --10 minutes

Ready in --6 minutes

This order of baba ghannouj, $5.78, had an unappealing brownish tint. Though it tasted fresh, the dip just wasn't that exciting. Some warm, doughy bread came on the side.
