    Engrossed's Note:

    From: "The Vegetarian Epicure" by Anna Thomas, first edition 1972. This book was a real find! I think some soy sauce and or parsley would be good in this too.

    1. 1
      Poke the eggplant in a couple of places with a fork and bake at 350F for about 1 hour until very soft. Let cool.
    2. 2
      Scoop out all of the pulp and discard skin.
    3. 3
      Mash pulp well and add all other ingredients (except sesame seeds).
    4. 4
      Roast sesame seeds in a small pan on stovetop or 400F oven, stirring if needed. When light brown in color, remove from heat and let cool.
    5. 5
      Stir half of the sesame seeds into the eggplant mixture.
    6. 6
      Turn the eggplant mixture into an attractive serving dish and sprinkle remaining sesame seeds over the top.
    7. 7
      This dish may be served as an appetizer with crackers or breadsticks. It is also a great condiment for Baked Polenta squares, and goes very well with an antipasto platter.
