Instructions

Roast eggplants

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F
  2. Cut 4 eggplant(s) (of about 200gr / 7oz each) in half, brush both sides with the olive oil, season with salt and pepper
  3. Arrange them on a baking tray and bake for 15 minutes on each side
  4. Take out of the oven and place them on a dish

Prepare the tahini sauce, while the eggplants are roasting

  1. Add the tahini*, lemon juice, garlic, oil and yogurt (optional - see notes) in a food processor
  2. Process for 1-2 minutes, until you get a smooth mixture
  3. Taste the mixture, add salt and pepper (to taste) and/or lemon and stir

Assemble & serving

  1. Using a spoon, spread the sauce on each eggplant half
  2. You may garnish with freshly chopped spearmint and/or parsley, as well as hemp seeds (so to increase the protein intake)

Notes

✔ *If you are allergic to sesame seeds, simply do not add tahini in the sauce; as such, you will have a yogurt sauce instead

✔ For a lactose-free alternative, use water instead of yogurt: for every 2 tablespoons of tahini add 1 tablespoon of water

Serving size: 2 eggplant halves
