1/4 cup tahini
kosher salt

If the eggplant is not very soft, place it in the oven for an extra 5 minutes.

Remove the oven and let it cool. Peel them and discard the skin.

Add the eggplant is a medium size bowl.

Mash the vegetable using a fork until it has a paste consistency.

Add 1/4 cup of tahini, cumin, 1/4 lemon juice, and garlic. Combine well.
