This recipe was very good. I used two eggplants instead of the one and adjusted the rest of the ingredients accordingly. I may have used too much lemon as the consistency was a little loose, but still tasted fine to me. I ran everything through the food processor as I like this dish smooth. Served it with organic blue corn chips. Thanks for the post!

PRIMO!! The only alteration to this recipe I made is that I roasted the eggplant over coals for the entire cooking process and I used two (2) medium-sized eggplant instead of just one. I kept the proportions of the other ingredients and the finished product did not turn out too soupy [I was afraid it might]. I also blended this in the food processor.

I serve this with the whole wheat mini Pita rounds.

Love it! I've always enjoyed babaganoush but never made it myself. I also roasted the eggplant in the oven, but will try it over coals in the summer. When I make it next time I'm going to cut the garlic back to two cloves. Though I love garlic, I felt it slightly overpowered the eggplant. Not really a problem, but I think I'd like it with a bit less. Like many other reviewers, I also increased the cumin. I used about 1/2 teaspoon and it could use even more if you like that flavor. My local food coop sells bulk tahini, plain and roasted flavors, and I used the roasted and it was excellent for this recipe.

Followed the recipe to a T. Folded roasted red peppers into the eggplant dish, and served it with grilled bread. Yum.

My husband absolutely loved this! I liked it, just not quite as much as him. I had never had this before so maybe it just takes some getting used to. We used the food processor for the eggplant and then stirred the rest of the ingredients in by hand. My only question is, was I suppose to leave the seeds in?

My first attempt at Baba Ghanoush and it is awesome. I accidentally mixed in the olive oil, but it is still great. I am already looking fwd to my next trip to the produce stand to get another eggplant.
