  • 1 medium - large eggplant
  • 1/4 tahini
  • 1 small lemon juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon or more to taste salt
  • 1/2 garlic clove ground in a mortar & pestle
  • olive oil before serving
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. When heated, place eggplant on a baking sheet or in a pan and roast 60-70 minutes. When you touch it with a fork, it will look indented if fully cooked.
  2. Remove eggplant and, when cool to touch, cut down the middle. Scoop out innards with a fork and place roasted eggplant in a medium-sized bowl. Mix vigorously with fork, breaking apart chunks.
  3. Add tahini, lemon juice, salt and garlic and mix well. Taste and adjust salt or garlic as needed.
  4. Before serving, drizzle top with olive oil.
