WANTED: looking for: eggplant recipe

I got an eggplant plant at the PG County swap in May, along with a recipe for a dip. Of course, I didn't remember the recipe (it was not written down). Can whoever gave me the recipe and the plant e-mail me? Thanks.

Hi Dawn,
It was I-- boy it was hard to talk you into taking that eggplant! LOL

Roasted Eggplant Dip (Baba Ghanoush)
for 2 cups:
3 med eggplant (about 3&1/2 - 4 lbs)
5 tsp tahini (can substitute 1 Tbl peanut butter plus 1 tsp roasted sesame oil the dark kind)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Juice of 1 large lemon (about 1/4 cup)
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbl. good olive oil

Prick the eggplants a few times and roast in a preheated 400 degree oven 45-60 minutes until flesh is very soft. When cool enough to handle, split open & scrape insides into food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients and puree until smooth. Good with pita bread, pita toasts, veggies, lavosh chips, wheat thins, just about anything.

You can adjust the garlic-- I like lots. I've also just roasted a full head of garlic, as is, brushed with olive oil, along side the eggplant. You have to use twice as much, but it's a smoother flavor. Just squeeze the roasted cloves out of their skins into the food processor. You can find tahini in most supermarkets these days, and you can always find sesame oil in the Chinese section.

I almost forgot-- I wanted to start a new recipe thread, but I'll do it in Conversations....
