    Syrinx's Note:

    A Middle Eastern dip or salad, made from aubergines/eggplant and tahini, deliciously garlicky and sublimely fresh with mint and lemon. Serve with pitta bread and salad as part of a mezze table, or pack in a leakproof pot and eat with breadsticks and strips of raw red pepper for a great picnic dish. There are many good recipes for babaganoush, but I especially like this one which comes from "Diva Cooking" by Victoria Blashford-Snell and Jennifer Joyce. As with most traditional dishes of this type, feel free to ring the changes with the herbs and quantities.

      very nice and light! I actually roasted the garlic (I used 3 large cloves) with one eggplant and omitted the tahini. Very yummy with the mint - Thanks!
