Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F) Gas mark 4 for five minutes. Place whole aubergine on a baking tray and bake for 45 minutes until outer shell is crisp and inside is soft. Set aside to cool for 20 minutes.
  2. Split open the aubergine by cutting in the centre, and scoop out the flesh into a medium sized bowl. Discard the skin.
  3. Next add the garlic, salt, lemon juice, yoghurt, tahini and mash by hand until a smooth puree is achieved, or place in a blender and pulse for 5 seconds.
