Number of Servings: 16


    1 medium eggplant
    2 medium red peppers
    3 gloves garlic, minced
    1/4 cup tahini
    juice of one lemon
    Optional: add cumin, black pepper, cayenne pepper flakes, and salt to taste


1. Roast the eggplant and the red peppers either in a broiler or on a grill pan on the stove until their skins are black and charred-looking and the insides are soft. Let cool until they can be handled and then peel, discarding the seeds of the red peppers. (Chef Meg has a good tutorial about roasting red peppers.)

2. Dice the roasted red peppers, and mash the eggplant with a fork. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

3. Chill and enjoy!

    I'd give this six stars if I could. I usually don't like eggplant but I loved this. It's good with pitas, turkey pastrami, and extra red pepper flakes. - 5/19/10
