Number of Servings: 1


    1 large Eggplant
    1/4 cup Lemon Juice
    1/4 cup Tahini
    2 Tablespoons lightly toasted sesame seeds
    3 cloves Garlic
    1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
    1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
    1/2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Grilling the Eggplant gives a smokey flavor, but attention is needed to prevent burning. Additional herbs may enhance the flavor without adding calories, (for example a dash of hot sauce, or parsley, or rosemary). Use as a dip for chips or veggies. Also good as a spread in Middle Eastern style wraps.


Pre-heat grill (or oven ) to 400 degrees. Prick the skin to the Eggplant with a fork. Wrap Eggplant in foil and grill or bake for 40 - 45 minutes. Turn occasionally. When soft remove for the heat, unwrap the foil and place in a bowl of cold water. When cooled remove from the water and peel. The skin will pull off easily when the ends are cut. Drain excess liquids for 20 minutes.
Place Eggplant and the other ingredients in a food processor or blender and puree. Put the mixture in a bowl and cover. Chill for 2 - 3 hours before serving.
