  • Grill the eggplant over direct heat, after pricking in several places with a fork, until it is blackened and collapsed. This will take from 30 - 45 minutes, depending on the size of the eggplant and how hot the grill is.
  • Scrape the soft flesh from the skin (leaving a few bits of blackened skin will add to the nice smokey flavor) and purèe in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Garnish as desired. Serve with wedges of pita bread, crackers, etc.
  • TIP: Eggplants can also be oven-roasted at 400°F  for 30 - 45 minutes, or until soft and collapsed.
