Inspired by Mediterranean and Middle Eastern foods and flavors, resident food alchemist and plant-based home cook Sasha Pagni shared this buildable, versatile, and truly delicious mezze platter, starring a smoky, creamy baba ganoush-inspired dip. Traditionally a Lebanese dish—in Arabic, it translates loosely to "pampered daddy"—baba ganoush takes eggplant (rich in iron and antioxidants) and cooks it over an open flame; here, it's suggested to broil it on high in the oven. Peel off the skin and blend with your favorite olive oil, tahini, garlic, and lemon for a dip you'll want to dollop on everything. The intention behind this board is that it can help clean out your fridge at the end of the week, when you have a hodgepodge of plant fixings left from the farmer's market. Transform it all into a grazing board; it's ideal for the weekend, when a spontaneous intimate gathering arises, or if you have long meetings all day and want to snack while you work.
