Smoky Baba Ghanoush

Smoky Baba Ghanoush

2 md Eggplants
1/2 c Tahini, *
3 Garlic cloves, chop coarsely
4 tb Lemon juice, fresh
2 ts Salt
1 ts Pepper
1 ts Sugar

Wash eggplants and, with fork, prick them in about 5 spots. Grill whole
eggplants over medium-hot coals. Turn about every 5 minutes to evenly char
skin. Grill until just soft and charred all over, about 20 minutes. Cool.
Cut in half and scoop out insides (you may find it easier to peel skin off
with your fingers if eggplant gets too mushy).

In food processor fitted with metal blade, combine eggplant, garlic,salt,
sugar, tahini, lemon juice and pepper. Puree until smooth. If mixture seems
too thick, add a little water to achieve desired consistency. Adjust

*This paste, made from sesame seeds, is available at most grocery stores.
Makes 2 cups depending on size of eggplants.
