Aubergine is also known by other names as aubergine, love pear, bush egg and bakman. Baking eggplants is, in my opinion, the best method of processing them. The baked flesh can be used in many ways: in stews, soups, spreads, salads, and also as an ingredient of a delicious brownie.


  • 2 eggplants
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil plus to serve
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons of tahini (tahini - sesame paste)
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • salt
  • pepper
  • chilli
  • ground or crushed coriander seeds
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint and parsley
  • pomegranate seeds


  1. Slice the eggplants in half lengthwise.
  2. We cut the pulp in a checkered pattern, deeply, being careful not to cut the skin.
  3. Slightly salt each cut half and leave for about 10 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200/220°C.
  5. When the salted eggplants release their juice, wipe them with a paper towel.
  6. Then, sprinkle with olive oil, rub it into the pulp and place on a baking sheet lined with paper, cut side down.
  7. Bake for about 30 - 40 minutes, let cool.
  8. Peel the skin or use a spoon to gently scrape out the pulp.
  9. Discard the skin and transfer the eggplant flesh to a sieve to drain.
  10. Put the drained pulp into a blender, add garlic, sesame paste, tahina and lemon juice.
  11. Mix until smooth.
