  • 2 aubergines
  • Small bunch fresh parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic (peeled and roughly chopped)
  • 2 tspn tahini paste
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Olive oil

  1. Peel both the aubergines and place onto a hot griddle pan or under the grill. Cook on each side for around 5 -6 minutes. Then add the aubergines to a roasting tray with a drizzle of olive oil and place in the oven for a further 10-15 minutes to soften a bit more.
  2. Take the aubergines out of the oven and leave to stand for 5 minutes. Cut them into small chunks and add just over half the chopped aubergines to a food processor. Add the tahini paste, parsley and a bit of the lemon juice to the blender. Add a dash of olive oil and then blend until smooth.
  3. Mix the blended mixture with the leftover aubergine chunks. Mix in a bit of chopped parsley and the rest of the lemon juice. Lightly pour in about 1 tbpsn olive oil and mix everything together.
  4. Served with some grilled pitta bread on the side.
