 Ingredients List

  • 2 md Aubergines
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, peeled
  • 2 tb Tahini
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tb Parsley, Finely Chopped
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper


Preheat the oven to gas mark 5/375F/190C. Prick the skins of the aubergines
with a carving fork and bake in the oven for one hour, or until flesh is
soft. Remove and allow to cool so you can handle them without burning your
hands. Cut in half and scoop out the flesh into a bowl. Mash with a fork.
You may prefer to use a food processor, but i like the rough finish
achieved with a fork.

Crush the garlic cloves with a hard blow from your hand on the back of a
large sharp knife and then chop the pulp finely. Add this, along with the
tahini, lemon juice and parsley, to the aubergine. Stir everything
thoroughly, and add enough olive oil to give a rich thick consistency.
Season with salt and pepper and serve with warm slices of pitta bread or
hot toast.
