Ingredients:
2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
3 tablespoons tahini

Preparation

1
Directions:
2
Preheat your oven to 425*F.
3
Wash and dry off your eggplant.
4
Prick it with a fork few times and place it on the lower rack that is covered with aluminum foil.
5
After 20 minutes, turn the eggplant and let it "roast" for additional 20 minutes.
6
If you have your grill hot and ready, you can grill the eggplant. Grilling will give Baba Ganoush nice smokey flavor.
7
If you are in a hurry, you can always microwave the eggplant.
