Muna's notes for this recipe:
I couldn't remember which group I read from that someone was looking for an eggplant dip like hummus. So I just shared with all.

This is a yummy dip. Eat it like you would hummus.

Cut 1" slits in eggplant. Bake at 450' until tender or steam.
Split & scoop out the insides, scraping to get it all out. Mash it.
Mix tahini, lemon juice, garlic & salt to taste.
Add mashed eggplant to the mixture.
OPTIONAL--This can all be done in a food processor if you have one.
Place in a serving bowl & drizzle with olive oil.
Garnish with parsley if desired.

Muna, thanks for sharing your eggplant hummus recipe. Where do you buy tahini? When I made the eggplant hummus from an online recipe ( which was very similiar to yours I didn't have the tahini so used some sesame oil instead.. I was worn out yesterday after no sleep at all the night before and so after making this dip I hit the sack at 5pm and woke up at 12am starving.. So I took out the eggplant hummus and the only the I had to go with it was dorito chips so had them and a diet pepsi! It was GOOD to me! Oh that recipe I used had chickpeas and I used my blender to blend in the ingredients..

I get my tahini from a local Middle Eastern Market. It is available in some grocery stores that have an international section. I also found an eggplant hummus recipe that I will be trying one of these days.

BTW Shirley check out a new group called Mediteranean Flair that I just started yesterday. It would be great if you shared some yummy recipes you may have.
