This is the second or third generation of an adaptation of Elizabeth David’s recipe for Babaganoush. It is wonderful as a dip or used in sandwiches.

(12 servings)

  • 2lb. eggplant, grilled and roasted until soft
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. minced fresh garlic
  • 1 ½ cups nonfat yogurt cheese
  • 2/3 tsp. salt, or to taste
  • ½ tsp. black pepper, or to taste
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped cilantro

Place eggplant directly over flame and cook until skin is charred. Place charred eggplant on a cookie sheet and roast in a 350F preheated oven for 30 minutes. When cool enough to handle peel roasted eggplant and put pulp in a food processor. Puree until smooth and whip in other ingredients by hand. Best if refrigerated overnight.
