Author Notes

The traditional topping of pomegranates add a lovely unexpected freshness to the warm smoky eggplant and not to mention the added nutritional impact. So worth the effort of having to peel the pomegranates —whomadethehummus

What You'll Need
  • 2 cups Roasted Eggplant
  • 1 cup Good Tahini
  • 1/2 cup Freshly squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 3 Glove of Garlic
  • Generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 peeled pomegranate
  1. Start with three nice sized eggplants. Let me just say color makes a difference here. The dark purple aubergines are the ones you want to use for this recipe. I enjoy all species but the lighter ones don’t hold up to this type of roasting. Score each vegetable with a fork three or four times and place them on a hot grill. Let them roast for at least 45 minutes
  2. Once good and charred on both sides remove the eggplant and scoop out the creamy pale innards
  3. Add the eggplant, garlic and tahini together and blend with a hand blender or electric blender. Add lemon, salt and blend
  4. Plate it by smoothing it out on a nice Platter
  5. Give it a good drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a generous topping of Pomegranate seeds and that’s it! So easy and delicious,
