What All You Need:

2 Eggplants, halved lengthwise
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil + more to drizzle
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
¼ Cup Tahini
½ Cup Thick Yoghurt
Salt to taste
Chopped Parsley, for garnish
Pomegranate Seeds, for garnish
Toasted Pita Bread, to serve

How to Make:

Step 1

Place the halved eggplants on a baking tray, drizzle olive oil on all sides of the eggplants and bake for 30 minutes at 200°C (400°F) in the oven.

Step 2

Once cooked, remove from oven and scoop out all the flesh from inside the eggplants and place on a cutting board. Discard the skin. Mince the eggplant flesh with a knife to form a rough paste and transfer to a bowl.

Step 3

Next, add garlic, 1 tbsp olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, yoghurt and salt to taste to the eggplants and mix well.

Step 4

Now, transfer the dip to a serving plate, and garnish with chopped parsley & pomegranate seeds. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil and serve with toasted pita bread.
