Recipe's preparation

    Roasting and preparing eggplant
    1. Turn on the BBQ to max to heat up (keep lid down)
    2. Preheat an oven to 220°c.
    3. Prick the eggplants with a fork in several places and place on the grill part of the bbq and roast with lid down (to create smoke).
    4. Grill, turning frequently, until the skin blackens and blisters and the flesh just begins to feel soft, 10 to 15 minutes.
    5. Cut eggplant in half and transfer the eggplant to a baking sheet and bake until very soft, 15 to 20 minutes. At this point I add 2 of the 3 garlic cloves in the oven at the same time to roast (keep 1 garlic clove as raw)
    6. Remove from the oven, let cool slightly, and peel off and discard the skin.
  1. Making the dip
  2. Add all ingredients to the thermomix bowl (including eggplant and roast garlic), mix 10 sec, sp 7

    Taste dip, add more lemon juice, tahini, salt or pepper (to your taste), scrape down bowl and mix again 10 sec, sp 7

    Serve with olive oil & flat bread

    This is Sooooo Good!

    I use my gas stove top burners to blacken the skins of eggplant and capsicum too, as I love that smoky charred flavour it gives the flesh. Using this method and the roasted garlic gave it an added depth of flavour - absolutely delish!

    I am the only person in my family that likes eggplant so I cut the recipe in half (except for the cumin as you can never have enough😝). It worked perfectly.

    Thanks for a great recipe.

    amorhomechef: Tahini is sesame paste. It can be hulled or unhulled. You can make it yourself if you have plenty of sesame seeds. 👌🏼

    This recipe ensures you get that smokey taste into the eggplant, which makes all the difference. I 'burn' mine over the gas burner on the stove (messy but effective). The balance of tastes here is just right, and the tip for roasting the garlic works well too. YUM Love
