Friday Foods: Moutabel

Other than hummus, moutabel is another favourite of mine. It’s relatively easy to make too. I love the roasted, smokey flavour that comes with the roasting of the eggplant.

1 large eggplant
1 medium sized onion
1/3 cup tahini
1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
4 table spoons lemon juice
salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 green chili

Cut the eggplant, onion and chili in half and roast for half an hour in the oven at 180°c-200°c or until the eggplant is tender. (I put my ingredients to be roasted in the toaster oven for half an hour) When the roasted vegetables are cool, remove the skin on the eggplant. Put all the ingredients into a food processor and give it a whizz until you get a nice paste.
