  • 2 medium aubergines (eggplant)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper


  • Place the eggplants over a high gas flame on your stove. Allow it to char on all sides, turning the eggplant every 5 minutes to get a nice smokey flavor. Once cooked, set aside on a plate to cool.
  • Alternatively, preheat your oven to 450F. Place the eggplants on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until charred on the outside and cooked through. Allow to cool.
  • Once cooled, scoop the flesh out of each eggplant and into a food processor. Add the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper. Process until smooth. Taste and add more lemon juice, oil, or salt if needed.
  • Serve garnished with parsley and olive oil.
