    3 lbs eggplant (about 3 medium)
    1/2 cup tahini
    1/2 cup lemon juice
    3 Tbsp minced garlic
    1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
    1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper


Warm up grill to high heat. Pierce eggplants several times with a sharp knife. Place on the grill and cover. Cook, turning occasionally until blacked all over and eggplant skin is very soft (20 minutes or so). Remove from grill and cool.

Add eggplant and continue to process until mixture is smooth. Scoop into serving dish. Serve with fresh vegetables and pita bread.
