Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 large eggplant
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to (high) broil.
  2. Slice eggplant into 1/4 inch rounds and place on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. On a small piece of tin foil, add the garlic cloves, drizzle over 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Loosely wrap the foil around the garlic. Place the wrapped garlic on the baking sheet with the eggplant.
  4. Broil for 5 minutes, turn eggplant and broil for an additional 5 minutes. Turn broiler off, but do not remove eggplant from the oven. Heat oven to 350 degrees and roast for an additional 25 minutes.
  5. Remove from pan, wrap the rounds in foil to lock in moisture; let sit for about 5 minutes.
  6. Peel away most of the skin of the eggplant and add flesh to a food processor. It should be soft and tender and the skin should come off easy. Add the roasted garlic tahini, lemon juice, remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, and parsley. Process until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Garnish with additional parsley. Serve with pita chips and veggies.
