This is one of my favorite dishes I make at least once a week. I ate a similar version at a friend's house who recreated it after eating it at a Syrian family's house and then made my own version at home. I usually roast the eggplant the day before or in the morning and then I can make the dish quickly when it's time to eat. I usually serve it with bread. It keeps well in the fridge as well for a yummy lunch the next day.

Instructions Checklist

  • Place eggplant on a baking sheet and poke numerous times with the tip of a sharp knife.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until eggplant is soft, mushy, and dark brown, about 45 minutes. Allow to cool, about 1 hour.

  • Peel eggplant and cut flesh into large cubes. Place into a bowl.

  • Mix tahini, lemon juice, and grated garlic in a cup. Add 1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses and salt; mix well. Pour tahini sauce over eggplant and mix well. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses and olive oil. Sprinkle parsley on top.

Cook's Note:

You need to adjust the amount of pomegranate molasses to your own personal taste. I usually use a large clove of garlic and hence a little more pomegranate molasses, but it's up to you.

Yum! Unfortunately I didn't have any parsley so I am sure that would have changed the flavor some. But it was delicious without it. My husband loves anything with tahini so of course it was a hit with him. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Read More
