    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    This is a classic Middle Eastern appetizer. I was given two small Chinese eggplants from Uncle Bob's garden, and decided to try my hand at this recipe. I'm not much of an eggplant fan, perhaps it's the seeds, or the tough purple skin, or maybe I've just had it overcooked and mush too many times. This dip was PERFECT though. Served it as a spread on homemade falafels, and had the leftovers with pitas.
