Baba Ghanoush

Mmmm. This is my dinner tonight, served with tortilla chips (not the traditional complement!--which is pita).

2-3 eggplant (i.e. 2 if you're cheap like me)

-roast whole at 400* for 45 min.
-cut in half, scoop out the flesh, press in a colander to remove excess liquid. Puree.

Add and puree:
2 cloves garlic,
1 1/2 Tbsp tahini
juice from 1 large lemon (or 3 Tbsp+a bit)
1/2 tsp salt.

Serve drizzled with olive oil, unless there's no one around to impress, because you're batching it alone tonight. Like me. sniff.
