    Can this recipe be frozen?

    Can I use yogurt instead of tahini in my hummus and baba ghanoush?

    This was smooth, creamy, light and delicious! I used a variety of 5 small (4"-6") eggplants (I have no idea how much this weighs) and added a touch extra lemon juice and parsley, but otherwise followed instructions exactly. I also peeled the eggplants. I will absolutely make this again and again - it's so great!! The only other note is that the prep/cook time isn't correct if you count in the cooking time of the eggplant for 20-25 min first. Next time I may double and roast the garlic too.

    We are having dinner guests tonight and I made this recipe as an appetizer. I have already been sampling it and I love it. I copied it down and added it to my book of "keepers." This has wonderful flavor and consistency. I didn't modify the recipe at all. It is really nice as is. I'm serving it with pita chips. Thanks!
