Ingredients

1 large eggplant
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley

Instructions

1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Pierce the eggplant several times with a fork, wrap in aluminum foil and bake for 40-45 minutes until the eggplant is soft and wrinkly. 

2. Place in a colander over a bowl to drain any juices (about 20 minutes).
