Ingredients
  1. 3 large eggplants
Dressing
  1. 5 Tablespoon Tahini
  2. 5 Tablespoon Lemon juice
  3. 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  4. Olive oil, red pepper and parsley for garnish
Instructions
  1. Score each eggplant at 1 inch lengths and ½ inch deep slits.
  2. Make about 6 slits in each eggplant, randomly placed
  3. Grill about 30 minutes, turning frequently until they are charred
  4. Remove from grill and leave to cool on a plate
  5. Open each eggplant, and remove as much of the seeds as possible.
  6. Then remove the skin and place the eggplant filling in a colander to drain. Leave for at least 15 – 20 minutes.
  7. Place the eggplants in a bowl and using a fork, break the eggplants apart. You can use a food processor, on pulse setting, making sure not to overbeat.
  8. Mix the dressing with the eggplant and empty in a shallow bowl.
  9. Garnish with olive oil, red pepper, and parsley
Notes
  1. 1. Instead of grilling you can line a baking pan with foil and broil the eggplants, turning occasionally till done. But grilling is the classic way, and much more flavorful.
