Eggplant Spread (Baba Ghanoush)

For some reason eggplant seems like one of those elusive vegetables. You either hate it or love it. How do you cook it anyways? 

Turning it into a spread is simple and delicious!


1 medium eggplant

1 fresh garlic clove

2 tbsp of tahini

salt to taste


1) Place eggplant in an oven safe dish and bake at 375 degrees for 1 hr. Eggplant is done when the skin is wrinkled.

2) Let the eggplant cool until comfortable to handle. Cut in half, spoon out the flesh and place into a blender. Add the remaining ingredients. Pulse until you get the creamy consistency you like.
