Baba Ganoush


1 large eggplant
1-1/2 tablespoons sesame tahini
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic, pressed, or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


Pierce eggplant and place it, whole, 3 to 4 inches under broiler. Broil it on all sides for a total of 30 minutes. Cool; peel skin from flesh. Put eggplant flesh into a blender with other ingredients and mix at high speed for a couple of minutes. Cool and serve with small pita bread triangles.


Makes ample hors d'oeuvre for 4.
