DIRECTIONS

  • Poke several holes randomly in each eggplant; place the eggplants on a foil-lined baking tray and bake in a 230°C/450°F/7-8 gas markfor about 45 minutes or until softened; let stand for about 10 minutes until it is cool enough to handle; cut the eggplants lengthwise, discard the seeds, scoop out the flesh and place in a food processor; discard the shells; pulse with the on/off motion until the eggplant flesh is finely chopped then transfer it to a medium-sized bowl.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large - preferably non-stick pan - over a medium heat; add the onion, garlic and leek; cook for 10-15 minutes, adding sugar about halfway through the cooking time, stirring often until the contents of the pan are caramelised; reduce the heat to medium-low.
  • Add the next 4 ingredients - salt, coriander, cumin and pepper - heat and stir for about 15 minutes until fragrant; add to eggplant; stir well until all the ingredients are well-combined.
  • Add the remaining 3 ingredients - parsley, lemon juice and tahini - and stir well until all the ingredients are well-combined.
  • Chill, covered, for 1 hour to allow the flavours to blend.
