INGREDIENTS

1 large eggplant

3 Heirloom tomatoes

1/4 cup tahini, plus more as needed

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoon lemon juice

salt, to taste

cracked pepper, to taste

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Cut eggplant in half, rub with olive oil and toss tomatoes with olive oil. Place on a sheet pan and roast until tender, about 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Once cool, peel off and discard the skin of the eggplant and squeeze some of the juice out of the tomatoes.

Place the eggplant and tomatoes in a food processor. Add tahini, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper and mix well. Taste and add more salt, tahini and/or lemon juice, if needed.

Transfer the mixture to a serving bowl and spread with the back of a spoon to form a shallow well. Drizzle the olive oil over the top and sprinkle with the parsley.

Serve with naan or toast points.
