Baba Ghanoush


1 large eggplant
2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp tahini (sesame paste)
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp lemon juice
125 ml yogurt
3 tbsp olive oil
Several whole olives


Heat oven to 200°C. Place whole eggplant on a baking sheet and bake until the outer shell is crisp and the inside is soft and mushy (about 1 hour). Let the eggplant cool, then remove and discard the skin and the green cap. Spoon the inside into a food processor or a blender. Add garlic, tahini, salt, lemon juice and yogurt. Purée until creamy. Spoon into a serving dish and garnish with olive oil and whole olives. Serve cold or warm, with sliced pita bread or vegetables for dipping.


(thanks to Antonio @ the Hotel Sea Shell in Adliya for that delightful recipe)
