Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 large eggplant
    1/2 cup pine nuts
    3 tbsp tahini
    3 tbsp lemon juice
    3 cloves garlic - minced
    olive oil
    salt
    black pepper

Directions

1. Halve the eggplant lengthwise. Brush the skin and flesh with olive oil, season the flesh side with salt and pepper, and place the halves flesh-side down on a broiler pan. Broil 4-5 inches from broiler until flesh is soft and skin is blackened, about 15 minutes.

2. While the eggplant broils, toast the pine nuts in a pan over medium heat until lightly-browned and fragrant.

3. After the eggplant is cool enough to touch, use a spoon to scrape the flesh into a food processor. Add the pine nuts, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil (about 2 tbsp), and salt and pepper to taste. Process until smooth.
