This recipe is from Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison.
1 large or 2 medium eggplants, about 1 1/4 pounds
3 garlic cloves (which is a lot in my opinion)
1/4 cup tahini
juice of 1 large lemon
extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 425F. Slash the eggplant in several places so it won't explode. Put it in a pan and bake until it's soft to the point of collapsing, 30 -40 minutes. Peel the eggplant, then puree it in a blender or food processor with the garlic and tahini. Season with lemon juice and salt to taste. Mound the puree in a bowl and make a depression in the top with the back of a spoon. Pour olive oil into the hollow and sprinkle with parsley.

I am always striving to cook at home more. I desire to eat local to help save our planet but I am not perfect. I'm terrible at cooking meat, because I am a germaphobe for one reason among many.
So here are some of my favorite recipes. You can also find some great non-Austin blogs or resources that I use on this page.
