  • 2 pounds Eggplants Small ones are preferred
  • 2 cloves Garlic Finely minced
  • 1/4 cup Tahini
  • 3 tbsp Lemon juice Fresh
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil Extra virgin
  • Salt To taste
  • 1/8 tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Cumin powder
  • 1/8 tsp Red chili flakes Optional
  • 1-2 tbsp Parsley Fresh, Roughly Chopped


  • Place the eggplants directly on the gas stovetop open flame over medium heat. Cook all the sides until skin burns, cracks and blisters. It will also start to deflate a bit. This charring gives it a smoky flavor. Make sure you use tongs to handle the eggplants so that you don't burn yourself.
  • Remove from heat and place them on sheets of aluminum foil. Wrap them and let them cool. This makes it easier to remove the skins.
  • Peel and discard the skin from the eggplants.
  • Place the flesh in a strainer over a bowl and let it stand for 15 minutes to remove excess water.
  • Add this eggplant flesh and garlic in a mixing bowl and mash it with a fork or potato masher.
  • Add tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, paprika, cumin powder, red chili flakes, parsley and mix until smooth.
  • Garnish with toppings of your choice. I topped it off with high quality olive oil, fresh parsley, red chili flakes, zaatar.
  • Let it rest in the fridge for 1 hour to allow the flavors to deepen. Enjoy!

  • Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
