    Ingredients:

    Serves: 2-4

    Yield:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Grill whole eggplants in the oven turning to char or directly over a flame. The charred taste of flame-grilled eggplant is more authentic.
    2. 2
      Use tongs to turn the eggplant from side to side, ensuring that it’s cooked and soft all over. Place the hot, grilled eggplant in a paper bag or inside a covered dish and allow it to cool slightly. This makes it easier to peel.
    3. 3
      Remove the eggplant to a plate and get a small bowl of cold water ready. When it’s just cool enough to handle by its cap end, wet your fingers and pick off the charred peel.
    4. 4
      Cut it in half horizontally.
    5. 5
      Lay the eggplant down again and press a fork through the flesh, make striations along its length.
    6. 6
      Squeeze some lemon juice over the surface.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle cumin, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste, over it.
    8. 8
      Add crushed garlic to labneh and mix very well.
    9. 9
      Drizzle it up and down its length. Criss-cross the surface with a trail of labneh.
    10. 10
      Drizzle it with date syrup and pomegranate molasses. You want only a little sweetness. Drizzle from side to side, or diagonally, so that it makes a pretty pattern.
    11. 11
      Eat while it’s still warm.

      This is an utterly delicious way to have eggplant! A little too late I discovered that the recipe calls for labneh, I didn't have any but used some Greek sheep yoghurt instead, and it worked very well. The blend of flavours was extremely well balanced. I'll make this again. Thanks for posting!
