Recipe Ingredients for Babaganouj

2 small eggplant, cut in half lengthwise
1 tablespoon olive oil for roasting eggplants
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

Recipe Directions for Babaganouj

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Drizzle the eggplants with olive oil and put them cut side-down on the baking sheet. Roast them until they are very soft, 45-60 minutes.

  2. Once the eggplants are done, remove them from the oven and set aside until they're cool enough to handle.

  3. When the eggplants have cooled, scoop out the insides and add them to a food processor. Add the tahini, lemon juice and garlic. Pulse it all until smooth, adding olive oil as you go to thin it out and get the right consistency. Pour the mixture into a bowl, stir in the parsley and season to taste with salt and pepper.
