Baba Ghanoush


  1. Cook the aubergines under a pre-heated grill, turning half way through cooking, until the skin has charred and the insides are very soft. This will take about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Allow the aubergines to cool enough to handle then peel away the skin and scoop out the soft centres.
  3. Process the garlic cloves in a food processor. Add the soft aubergine, olive oil, tahini, lemon juice and salt. Mix until
    well blended.
  4. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with warm flat breads.
