    Heather U.'s Note:

    This is a delicious and very simple recipe if prepared in a food processor or blender. A wonderful spread to serve with pita bread, kalamata olives, feta, and tomatoes. This recipe calls for Japanese eggplant, which can be used whole without peeling or draining...more vitamins, less hassle! If you can only find "regular" eggplant (the large, very dark purple, almost black kind), I recommend you prepare it first by lightly salting and draining it for 30 minutes or so to remove bitterness prior to roasting. You may also wish to remove the skin as a matter of personal preference.

      Excellent just as written but I have to admit to adding 3T more tahini just because I'm addicted. This is a particularly nice-looking Baba Ghanouj. It's a delicate light green due to the added fresh herbs, not the usual grey. Yum.
